“Flower Song Convocation” at Parabola

Lee van Laer, poetry editor at Parabola, has posted my translation of “Flower Song Convocation,” the 17th poem of the Aztec codex Songs of Mexico, on the magazine’s page. The 1700-word poem is considered the most complete exploration of Nahua esthetic philosophy to survive the Conquest.
