This is a translation of 70 Baroque sonnets by Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz (c.1648-1695), closely following her Petrarchan (and Spanish) form, syntax and phrasing. Sor Juana was a Mexican nun, known to her contemporaries as the Decima Musa (tenth muse). After a translator's foreword and introduction by Melvin S. Arrington, Jr., facing page translations of the sonnets are grouped by type: philosophical-moral; historical-mythological; satirical-burlesque; love and wit; homages of court, friendship or letters; and religious.
