The History of the Conquest of New Spain by Bernal Diaz del Castillo.

I dedicate this book on the conquest of the New World to two great teachers, Carlos Fuentes and William Tribby. 8 Carlos Fuentes taught me through his writings and friendship that Tenochtitlan was built in the true image of gigantic heaven.

A new abridgement of Diaz del Castillo's classic Historia verdadera de la conquista de Nueva España. See all Product description. Related items to consider. The major figure of the first conquest is Hernan Cortes and of the second, Pedro de Alvorado.

The fact that David Carrasco really brought back all the words that were originally left out, and his added information accompanying the story, certainly added to the perspective of the history of this time in Mexico. Extremely colorful, revealing, and sometimes brutal, Bernard Diaz del Castillo describes everything from his memory, years later. How much luckier are we that he did this instead. A wonderful story of what one man saw accompanying Cortes, and his comparisons and perspective on what he saw and did are priceless! I loved it when he first met Montezuma, sitting on his throne, and of all things, Bernard said he was eating a tortilla!!!!

Besides containing important passages, scenes, and events excluded from other abridgements, this edition includes eight useful interpretive essays that address indigenous religions and cultural practices, sexuality during the early colonial period, the roles of women in indigenous cultures, and analysis of the political and economic purposes behind Diaz del Castillo's narrative. A series of maps illuminate the routes of the conquistadors, the organization of indigenous settlements, the struggle for the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, as well as the disastrous Spanish journey to Honduras. The information compiled for this volume offers increased accessibility to the original text, places it in a wider social and narrative context, and encourages further learning, research, and understanding.
