Rodríguez Publishes on 17th-Century Nun, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz

Lydia Rodríguez, Department of Foreign Languages, published an article entitled “La emoción como búsqueda de la sabiduría en El Primero Sueño de Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (1651–1695)” (Emotion as a Search for Wisdom in Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz’s First Dream 1651–1695).

The article analyzes Sor Juana’s passion for knowledge in her lengthy poem First Dream (El Primero Sueño). The First Dream exemplifies her quest for knowledge and enlightenment. Sor Juana’s passion and desire to learn lead her to become one of New Spain’s most notable and prolific Baroque poets.

The article was published in the journal Mirabilia, housed in Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
