Romances de los señores de Nueva España
The Romances de los señores de Nueva España (Spanish for "Ballads of the Lords of New Spain") is a 16th-century compilation of Nahuatl songs or poems preserved in the Library of the University of Texas. The manuscript also includes a Spanish-language text, the Geographical Relation of Tezcoco, written in 1582 by Juan Bautista Pomar, who probably also compiled the Romances.
The Nahuatl text and a Spanish translation of the Romances, as well as the Geographical Relation, was published in 1964 by Ángel María Garibay K. as volume 1 of Poesía nahuatl.
John Bierhorst produced the first full English prose translation of the Romances along with a paleographic transcription of the Nahuatl text, published in 2010 by the University of Texas Press and now available as an e-text. David Bowles crafted English verse version of select songs from the Romances in his Flower, Song, Dance: Aztec and Mayan Poetry, released in 2013 by Lamar University Press.
