“The magic here is not spectacular courage in one or two battles but the glamour of commitment to death at the peak of youth and beauty: the poignancy of the exhib-itionistic narcissism of youth determined once and for all on magnificent expenditure rather than slow wasting and remorseless physical deterioration.”
Inga Clendinnen, Aztecs: An Interpretation

“The children were kept by the priests for some weeks before their deaths (those kindergartens of doomed infants are difficult to contemplate).”
Inga Clendinnen, Aztecs: An Interpretation

“...now I know how I want death to come to me strolling in the slanting rain of light … I will say to Death, 'A moment, friend.' And then: 'I'm ready now.”
Inga Clendinnen
