Résumé

This article discusses the transitional nature of early Mesoamerican codices and their evolving status within the field of colonial Latin American literary studies. It does so by (1) exploring the physical and intellectual journeys of the original texts, a process characterized by historically conditioned forms of visual and textual literacy and by the often-divergent interests and goals of the individuals and institutions who came into contact with them; and (2) interrogating the displacements introduced by historical attempts at reproducing them in other formats and media and expanding the corpus through falsification. This chapter’s discussion allows for a revaluation of the way through which these texts came to occupy a place in the contemporary understanding of the colonial literary canon and the role they play in defining a field in transition.
