SOR JUANA INES DE LA CRUZ, SELECTED WORKS
During her life in 17th century Mexico, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz rose from obscurity to be the voice of the new world and arguably the first Renaissance genius in North America, pre-dating Jefferson. Her writings are earthly, scathingly feminist and her love letters openly sensual - depicting a mind that defied every idea of what a Catholic sister convent-bound might have been, in any century.
