Clearvigil in Spring - A Mayan Myth


Miguel Angel Asturias was a Guatemalan novelist, poet, diplomat and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1967. He is best known for his novels—including El Senor Presidente (The President), Hombres de Maiz (Men of Corn) and Mulata de Tal (Mulata)—and his substantial contribution to the novelistic technique called magical realism. The Nobel Committee took special note of his little-known poetic cycle, Clarivigilia Primaveral (Clearvigil in Spring), calling it an "impressive" work that "deals with the very genesis of the arts and of poetic creation, in a language which seems to have assumed the bright splendor of the magical queztal's feathers and the glimmering of phosphorescent insects."
