    FREE READ » Poems Protest and a Dream Selected Writings Penguin Classics Poems Protest and a Dream Selected Writings Penguin ClassicsThis collection of Sor Juana's writings is masterful and upon reading it one emerges incredibly impressed by the forceful intelligence of this 17th century nun and the rebuke against her age that should be but is not a well known classic of feminist literature Her letter La Respuesta a Sor Filotea is a masterful sarcastic learned defense against the authority of her time in defense of the education of women It should be a part of the standard curriculum as should be her poem Primero Sueno probably the finest poem written in the western hemisphere until the age of Whitman What makes her great was her truly devout nature and precise mind Her arguments are laid out as finely and as well read as the finest of legal arguments but with an emotional wit approaching Shakespeare and referenced in her arguments by the writings of scripture and the saints The poems are highly symbolic but in a way that survives the translation This is a must read and I am embarrass

    FREE READ » Poems Protest and a Dream Selected Writings Penguin Classics Poems Protest and a Dream Selected Writings Penguin ClassicsDon’t bother Although Ines appears to have been a wonderful intelligent saintly woman she comes off through the introduction and editing as only an early ardent feminist I cannot believe someone so renowned could produce such mediocre prose and poetry Her reputation cannot be by accident – yet the selection herein contained speaks otherwise
