Sor Juana turned out to be such a sassy lady. I enjoyed reading her opinion on unrequited love and how we usually fall for the one that doesn't love us. The writing was too lyric for me, I had trouble staying focused on what was said. Poetry has always been a problem for me because I'm a very impatient and straightfoward type of person.

Tenía éste pequeño libro en mi estantería pero nunca lo había leído, y hace 10 años no le entendía una sola palabra, me costaba mucho la poesía y la manera en que estaba escrito. En diciembre de 2015 lo empecé a hojear y me maravillé de todo lo que me había perdido. Mi respetos para esta mujer que a pesar de la época en que vivía, con muchos impedimentos para las mujeres, no se dejó vencer y gracias a eso tenemos acceso a sus escritos. Maravillosa lectura, nunca pasará de moda.

5 estrellas 100%.

Es mi segunda "Juana" favorita además de Juana de Arco.
Tal vez sus letras rebeldes y su disfraz de monja son el inicio de la motivación por quitarme la máscara de sumisión que nos ponen al nacer.
Tal vez mi cabello corto sea también un homenaje a su valentía.

Love her poetry even if I don't understand well that type of Spanish from the 16th-17th century.
