    Nezahualcoyotl, Aztec Poet King, Alive at 615 years

    Nezalhualcoyotl, Aztec Poet King, Alive at 615

    Nezahualcoyotl (fasting coyote) was born in 1402 and died in 1472, but his words live on today. They may even be more relevant than ever.

    As a poet, Nezahualcoyotl mused about the meaning of life. As a humanitarian, he believed nothing was more precious than life and therefore thought no life should be sacrificed to the gods. As a king, he wrote laws that held the elite to higher moral standards than other citizens, a code that we could definitely use today.

    Come listen to local poets share poetry by Nezahualcoyotl as well as poetry inspired by a love for things Mexica. 

    Anthony The Poet, along with other local poets, will be featured at this free event to be held at the UTSA downtown campus in conjunction with the Academy for Teacher Excellence, on Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 10 – 11 am.
