Born in Mexico in 1648, Latin America's finest baroque poet Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz spent her entire adult life in a convent. This unique dual-language collection of her works includes a famous prose piece that offers fascinating insights into the poet and the world in which she lived. Remarkable for her time, Sor Juana discusses the position of women with astonishing frankness, irony, and thinly veiled anger, issues that continue to be of concern today. How far, yet how little we have come in 300 years.
