This year the El Quixote Festival Honors Sor Juana Ines De La Cruz – La Decima Musa, with a dramatic theatrical reading of selected poetic, dramatic, and prose works by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (1651-1695), an extremely important colonial Mexican intellectual
and literary figure.
Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz is considered to be the greatest woman poet of Latin America. Sor Juana’s “La Respuesta”, her essay in defense of herself as a scholar and as an artist, stands for all time as one of the most elegant and learned defenses of the rights of women to equal opportunity in human culture. To this day, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz is honored as Mexico’s greatest hero.
Join us for a night in celebration of her magnificent words.
Location: Meredith College | 3800 Hillsborough St.
