This book transports us to the living, breathing world of the Aztecs, and covers the mundane and the beautiful, the tragic and the sensual. The broad range of themes in the selected poems is refreshing and often surprising, creating newer, more humane, and more realistic dimensions to our understanding of this ancient culture. Flower, Song, Dance is an important book, so much so that I hope it becomes a fundamental text that inspires the imaginations of a wider audience to explore this vastly under appreciated part of our culture, the roots of who we are. These poems are a testament to what it means to be a human in this vastly changing world.

Poetica 4 'Flower and song' was the ancient Mexican Aztecs' metaphor for poetry. Their brilliant poetic tradition has remained relatively unknown, despite the pioneering work of recent scholars. Edward Kissam and Michael Schmidt are fine poets who have both lived in Mexico; their versions recreate the many facets of that extraordinary society before the Spanish Conquest. They give us powerful echoes of the lyrical and philosophical songs, the songs of rejoicing, sorrow, ritual and war, and the epics of myth and legend. The authors trace the background to this material in their introduction, and the book also contains an appendix of poems from contemporary oral tradition.
