Frances Gillmor first published this fictionalized account of the life of the Aztec poet-king Nezahualcoyotl in 1949. That edition was not reviewed in the HAHR. No one could confuse the book with a serious and scholarly history, though it does have footnotes and a bibliography. But it is useful for extra reading assignments in undergraduate courses, and I have included it on my book lists through the years. For this reason the new edition (a reprinting actually) should be welcomed by teachers of Latin American history.
