This book is a poem based on the account of Bernal Diaz Del Castillo--a Spanish soldier who accompanied Cortez during his conquest of Mexico. This is a very dramatic poem that follows this soldier's account of the adventure. However, unless the reader is knowledgeable about the conquest of Mexico and the sequence of events that took place during this conquest--this poem will seem quite empty and meaningless. It is imperative that an historical account of the conquest be studied carefully before reading this very dramatic poetic rendering of Bernal Diaz' account. Penguin books offers the Diaz account of the Cortez expedition. Read this first!
