The bride of Huitzil : an Aztec legend by Hervey Allen( Book )

7 editions published between 1922 and 2015 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written as a narrative poem, The Bride of Huitzil tells the story of the Aztec god Huitzilopochtli, the deity of war, sun and human sacrifice. While the Nahuatl translates Huitzilopochtli's name as "left-handed hummingbird," scholars believe there may be some other meaning as no depictions seem to depict the deity with a hummingbird or hummingbird-like animal. According to legend, Huitzilopochtli's mother was Coatlicue, "The Mother of Gods," and his father was a ball of feathers, sometimes called Mixcoatl. When Huitzilopochtli's half-sister discovered her mother had become pregnant by Mixcoatl, she planned to kill Coatlicue and the baby. Huitzilopochtli, however, knew of the plan in the womb, escaped and killed his sister along with many of his 400 brothers. He tossed his sister's head into the sky, and it became the moon. Huitzilopochtli was one of the 18 gods with specific holy days or holy festivals. Every 52 years, the Aztecs believed that the world would end. On feast days, they would sacrifice an able-bodied male to Huitzilopochtli in hopes that the human blood would give the god enough strength to postpone the apocalypse for another 52 years
