Rene Prieto examines how Miguel Angel Asturias turns to the cultural traditions of the ancient Maya to produce three highly complex and widely misunderstood masterpieces.


"The main strengths of Prieto's study are that in sustaining a particular aooroach to Austria's indigenismo, he causes the three chosen works to illuminate each other, as part of a highly defined series." Gordon Brotherston, Modern Language Notes
