Book Overview
Pero valor, coraz n: porque en tan dulce tormento, en medio de cualquier suerte no dejar de amar protesto Sor Juana In s de la Cruz es una de las poetas m s importantes de la lengua espa ola.

Como novedad se incluyen, por primera vez juntas, la Carta de sor Juana a su confesor, el padre N ez, y la Respuesta a sor Filotea de la Cruz, dirigida al obispo de Puebla, atinadamente comentadas por la editora: Martha Lilia Tenorio, especialista en poes a barroca, dedicada a recuperar buena parte del acervo l rico de Nueva Espa a. Edici n, pr logo, notas y cronolog a de Martha Lilia Tenorio. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION But take courage, heart: because in such sweet torment, whatever my luck may be, I'll not cease professing love. Sor Juana In s de la Cruz is one of the most important poets of the Spanish language. She gave a grand finale to the Spanish Baroque period and is also a seductive figure: woman, nun, sage, and defender of the intellectual capacity of women. However, as with any other acclaimed author, Sor Juana has become a victim of her fame: everyone knows of her, but few have ever actually read her. This anthology presents a representative selection of her work, and is carefully annotated to make it accessible to any type of reader. For the first time, this collection pairs Sor Juana's letter to her confessor, Father N ez, and the Response to Sor Philotea de la Cruz, addressed to the Bishop of Puebla, precisely commentated by the editor: Martha Lilia Tenorio, specialist in Baroque poetry, dedicated to recovering the lyrical heritage of New Spain. Edition, prologue, notes, and chronology by Martha Lilia Tenorio.
