The "Legends of Guatemala" constitute a world of revelations, half myth, half truth. A work to be read aloud, its open spirit makes it possible to perceive the poetic sonority of the wonderful musical cadence that its paragraphs give off, in which it offers the reader comprehensive knowledge of the traditions and myths of pre-Hispanic, colonial and contemporary America. As a whole, the argument of the legends raises the cultural conflict that surrounds the American man in constant struggle with the forces of nature and the myths that he himself creates to interpret the meaning of destiny.
