Book Overview
Poetry. Women's Studies. Translated from the Spanish by Stalina Emmanuelle Villarreal. The twenty quartets comprising Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz's ENIGMAS were written for a group of learned Portuguese nuns in 1693 and were only discovered in 1968. Each enigma is structured around wordplay and poses a paradoxical, undecipherable riddle, one whose possible solution readers continue to ponder. ... such writing unfolds in an eternal present, remaining relevant, ongoing, and interactive every time a reader chooses to read it. Kathleen Rooney, Chicago Tribune
