Mornings in Mexico is a collection of travel essays, which incorporates Mexican myth and history. In the first essay, D. H. Lawrence describes two malevolent parrots as they mimic the yapping of a dog, and Corasmin, the ‘little fat, curly white dog,’ who appears resigned to their shrieking – and the heat and his fleas. The narrator realises that the thoughts he is projecting onto Corasmin belong to a different cycle of evolution. Quickly rejecting the evolutionary view, he prefers the Aztec account of successive suns and the convulsive ‘bang’ of history.
