Overview

Daughters of the Fifth Sun: A Collection of Latina Fiction and Poetry by Bryce Milligan, B. Milligan

According to the sacred beliefs of the Aztec, Maya, Quiche, and other peoples of Latin America, the universe has known five ages, the present being Quinto Sol, or Fifth Sun. "In this age," asked Cuahtencoztli, an ancient Aztec philosopher, "how best is truth spoken?" He was answered by Prince Tecayehuatzin, who said, "Only flower-and-song -- floricanto -- can express truth." Daughters of the Fifth Sun is a floricanto offering: of homes and heritage, of pride and hardship, of the mundane and the magical. From national award-winners to emerging talents, the contributors to this volume represent the power and elegance of a community of writers that has produced some of the most vibrant literary work of recent years.
