Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, known as The Tenth Muse of America, has been widely anthologized as a poet, intellectual, and defender of womens rights. Her calling as a nun, often denigrated or overlooked, is clear in The Divine Narcissus, the finest extant example of the auto sacramental, a medieval genre similar to mystery plays.Autos presented a blend of poetry, instrumental and choral music, dance and special effects and were intended to provide theological instruction to a broad audience. The Divine Narcissus is an allegory ostensibly written to explain Christian concepts to the Aztecs whose plight under colonization it also dramatizes.

It reveals a scintillating display of sacred and secular knowledge.Scholars and students will welcome this drama by Americas first feminist in its original Spanish and first English translation.
