Abstract

In 2000 Years of Mayan Literature Dennis Tedlock takes a painstaking approach to detail and asks us to reconsider our notions of pre-Colombian Mayan literacy and literature. This book gives a rich multi-level translation and decoding of the surviving corpus of Mayan material culture (pictographic writing, monuments, pottery, ornaments, códices) and its later post-Conquest destruction, adaptation and survival in the language-based categories of western epistemology (Roman alphabet).
