Reviews

Grossman [renders] Sor Juana's rhythmic gifts in smart and elegant measures.
Edith Grossman is a marvel. With the greatest artistry she has given vibrant, contemporary voice to Sor Juana, legendary proto-feminist bard of seventeenth-century Mexico, capturing the wit, tenderness, and religious fervor of her work.--Susan Bernofsky, translator of Kafka's The Metamorphosis
Impressive... This careful book may ignite new attention to Sor Juana in English, for which Grossman will deserve even more praise.
Her language is a lesson in speaking to the moment and to the centuries both, and Edith Grossman captures its suggestiveness with a calm elegance.--Alberto Ríos
Edith Grossman's contemporary translation renders the contemplations, rhymes, and drama of la Décima Musa ageless--Ana Castillo
