Catalogue Note

rare. Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (?1651-1695), known by her contemporaries as the 'tenth muse' and the 'phoenix of Mexico', is the most important figure of Spanish-American colonial literature. Inundacion Castalida was the first of her poetical works to be published (later editions bear the title "poemas de la única poetisa americana"). Palau erroneously cites and edition of Saragossa in 1682, which is in fact the fourth edition of 1692.
