Saqil pa Q’equ’mal: Light in Darkness:
Poetry of the Mayan Underworld
Saqil pa Q'equ'mal: Light in Darkness Signed Paperback EditionThe Mayan myths of the Popol Vuh are at once sensual and ruthless, none more so than the trials of Xibalba. In the oral and written traditions of this indigenous people, the road to the ancient underworld is well-marked, its fearsome tests legend. In a series of thirteen poems, a modern woman takes this time-honored journey through good and evil and what lies between, finding strength and refuge, union and reunion, and new purpose in primeval pleasures.
