Juana Ines de Asbaje y Ramirez de Santillana, AKA Sor Juana, was born in 1648 near Mexico City. She was an intellectual prodigy who taught herself Spanish, Nahuatl, Latin, Greek, mathematics, theology, philosophy, physical sciences, rhetoric and literature -- and who, when she died in 1695 of cholera, was the most famous Spanish-language poet of the age. In a time when it was unfashionable - and sinful - for women to exercise their intellect, Sor Juana writes sensual poetry in the court in the Viceroys court. When the Viceroy hires a charming, educated rogue to seduce and discredit her, Juana stands to lose everything she loves. Karen Zacharías acclaimed play gives vivid dramatic life to a literary and feminist icon.|
