Beschreibung

When Malinalli, a member of the tribe conquered by the Aztec warriors, first meets Cortes, she, like many, believes that he is the reincarnated forefather god of her tribe. Naturally, she assumes that her task is to help Cortes destroy the Aztec empire and free her people. The two fall passionately in love, but Malinalli gradually comes to realize that Cortes' thirst for conquest is all too human. He is willing to destroy anyone, even his own men, even their own love. Throughout Mexican history, Malinalli has been reviled for her betrayal of the Indian people. However, recent historical research has shown that her role was much more complex; she was the mediator between two cultures, Hispanic and Native American, and two languages, Spanish and Nahuatl. Bursting with lyricism and vivid imagery, Malinche finally unveils the truth behind this legendary love affair.

Achtung, es un Audiolibro en Ingles

Lamentablemente NO esta suficientemente explicito el hecho de que sea una version inglesa. Tendremos que esperar algun tiempo mas a una version en la lengua de Cervantes.
