Songs of the Lords of Anahuac

About five years ago, I translated but didn’t publish the shorter of the two existing Nahuatl poetry codices, the one known by its Spanish title Romances de los señores de la Nueva España, which I decolonize as SONGS OF THE LORDS OF ANAHUAC. For those who are interested in Nezahualcoyotl, this manuscript preserves most of his poetry.

I’m now revising those translations and creating a “normative” (consistent) transcription of the Nahuatl originals, adding notes to make obscure references easier for readers. I’ll be sharing these at a rate of about two a week on my Medium account.
