Overview

Poetry. Bilingual edition in Spanish and English. Translated by Margaret Sayers Peden. Margaret Sayers Peden, who is well known and respected for her translations of Fuentes, Neruda, Quiroga, and Paz, has made an admirable selection of poems that includes romances, redondillas, epigrams, decimas, sonnets, silvas, villancicos, and two excerpts from Sor Juana's theater. The introduction and notes provide the necessary context for those unfamiliar with the poet's life and times. "Her sprightly English versions of these technically exacting poems...would, I am sure of it, have pleased Sor Juana herself"—Alastair Reid.
