Most widely held works by Dennis Tedlock
Popol vuh : the definitive edition of the Mayan book of the dawn of life and the glories of gods and kings by Popol Vuh( Book )

32 editions published between 1985 and 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 2,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Popol Vuh, the Quiche Mayan book of creation, is one of the extraordinary documents of the human imagination and the most important text in the native languages of the Americas. It begins with the deeds of Mayan gods in the darkness of a primeval sea and ends with the radiant splendor of the Mayan lords who founded the Quiche kingdom in the Guatemalan highlands. Originally written in Mayan hieroglyphs, it was transcribed in the Spanish alphabet in the sixteenth century. This is the first unabridged English edition of the work, in Dennis Tedlock's widley prasied translation, with a full introduction and commentaries on the text." From the bookjacket
Finding the center : the art of the Zuni storyteller by Dennis Tedlock( )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A brilliant gathering of Zuni narrative poetry ... Tedlock's Zuni narrators seem like singers of some pueblo Beowulf, orchestrating oral traditions with voices they use like instruments. --Newsweek
Rabinal Achi : a Mayan drama of war and sacrifice by Dennis Tedlock( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is one of the most important surviving works of pre-Columbian civilization, Rabinal Achi, a Mayan drama set a century before the arrival of the Spanish, produced by the translator of the best-selling Popol Vuh. The first direct translation into English from Quiche Maya, based on the original text, Rabinal Achi is the story of city-states, war, and nobility, of diplomacy, mysticism, and psychic journeys. Dennis Tedlock's translation is clear and vivid; more than that, it is rooted in an understanding of how the play is actually performed. Despite being banned for centuries by Spanish authorities, it survived in actual practice, and is still performed in the town of Rabinal today. Tedlock provides an introduction and commentary that explain the historical events compressed into the play, the Spanish influence on the Mayan dramatic tradition, and the cultural and religious world preserved in this play."--Jacket

The Olson codex : projective verse and the problem of Mayan glyphs by Dennis Tedlock( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exploration of the influence of Mayan hieroglyphics on the poet Charles Olson (1910-1970) is an important document in the history of American literature. Olson spent six months in the Yucatán in 1951 studying Mayan culture and language, an interlude that has been largely overlooked by students of his work. Like Olson and Robert Creeley, Olson's disciple who published Olson's letters from Mexico, the poet Dennis Tedlock taught at the Univeristy of Buffalo. Unlike his two predecessors, Tedlock was also a scholar of Mayan language and culture, renowned for his translations from indigenous American languages, notably the Popul Vuh, the Mayan creation story. In The Olson Codex Tedlock describes and examines Olson's efforts to decipher Mayan hieroglyphics, giving Olson's work in Mexico the place it deserves within twentieth-century poetry and politics. -- from book flap
