Book Description

Kirk explores the life and work of Mexican nun Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz as a contribution to Latin American women's theology.Sor Juana, who died in 1695, was a prolific writer of "sacramental dramas" and liturgical poetry, who not only stands out as an fascinating figure in a social and ecclesiastical milieu that was militantly patriarchal, but also as a major theological figure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comprensive Glimpse 8 May 2000
By Tammylynne Johnson - Published on
After writing my thesis on Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, entitled "La Evolucion del Feminismo en Mexico a traves la poesia de Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz," I think that I have a good grasp on what information is most relevant to her life and literary works. I have never read a book that examines the author so closely written in English! In addition, Pamela Kirk's perspective as both a literary critic and theologian provide many perspectives that I had never considered. Don't hesitate to buy this book!
