“The rain god cries over Mexico” written by Laszlo Passuth


“The conquest of Mexico was undoubtedly one of the greatest deeds that occurred in the history of imperial Spain. Hernán Cortés and his army of five hundred soldiers obtained for their King and his religion the most important of the New World empires: the Aztecs. In this work, already a classic within the contemporary historical novel and now published in an excellent new translation, Passuth skilfully combines contemporary chronicles, archaeological data and his extensive knowledge of the historical setting to recreate one of the stages most fascinating in the history of the New World, and reflect on the impact that the clash of two opposing cultures had on Spaniards and Mexicans.””
