Check-in for Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Read-Along

Dear Common Readers,

Did you get a chance to check out Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz: Selected Works last month? Did you read a different collection of Sor Juana’s writings? If so, which one? Have you read her work before? What did you think of her writings? Did she find a place in your personal canon? Would you place her in The Canon of Great Literature? I would love to hear your thoughts about Sor Juana’s work.

Please check out “Let us learn about not knowing” by Juliana of the [blank] garden and my post “Fawning for Sor Juana” for our responses.

Leave a comment below or leave a link to your own blog post about Sor Juana. I’m eager to compare notes with you all.


Your sister reader,
Ms. Arachne


P.S. Next up will be the (slightly late) check-in post for Let’s Write Like Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Just for Fun. Anyone who is participating has until Sunday to compose a poem or letter in the style of Sor Juana. I hope to hear from you then.
