Eleanor Wilner's Maya is the winner of the 1979 Juniper Prize, an annual poetry award sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Press. These poems attempt the revising-- literally, the re-vision--of a tradition. In them, a number of women, some wise men, and other creatures are set free from their respective myths and returned to luck. And last rites are read over the inert forms of some old heroes who held the imagination of the West so long in their grip.
