Sample text

Yet, despite its originality, the novel does not deviate significantly from the Sor Juana archetype. Like the poet-nun and the lieutenant-nun, YOUR MATERNITY OR YOUR MIND 41 Claire never becomes a mother. Unlike Sor Juana and the Inquisition-battling de Erauso, whose lives emphasize virginity, Claire is not virginal but magically infertile. 16 The cure also makes Claire fall catatonic each time she leaves the Valley of Mexico. Thus, she succeeds as a military leader, although in contrast with the swashbuckling Catalina de Erauso, Claire earns her military honors while comatose in battle.

The significant limitations of this model have not detracted from the popularity of Sor Juana’s image. She is probably the Mexican writer with the largest number of streets named after her in the national capital.
