by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and Electa Arenal and Amanda Powell




Overview -

Defiant writing by the first feminist of the Americas--the Mexican nun Sor Juana In s de la Cruz--in response to the church officials that tried to silence her.

Known as the first feminist of the Americas, the Mexican nun Sor Juana In s de la Cruz enjoyed an international reputation as one of the great lyric poets and dramatists of her time. The Answer/La Respuesta (1691) is is Sor Juana's impassioned response to years of attempts by church officials to silence her. While earlier translators have ignored Sor Juana's keen awareness of gender, this volume brings out her own emphasis and diction, and reveals the remarkable scholarship, subversiveness, and even humor she drew on in defense of her cause.

This expanded, bilingual edition combines new research and perspectives on an inspired writer and thinker. It includes the fully annotated primary text responding to the church officials; the letter that ultimately provoked the writing of The Answer; an expanded selection of poems; an updated bibliography; and a new preface.
