Sample text

Y así, cuando esto considero acá a mis solas, suelo decir: Bendito seáis vos, Señor, que no sólo no qui­ sisteis en manos de otra criatura el juzgarme, y que ni aun en la mía lo pusisteis, sino que lo reservasteis a la vuestra, y me li­ brasteis a mí de mí y de la sentencia que yo mismo me daría— que, forzada de mi propio conocimiento, no pudiera ser menos que de condenación—, y vos la reservasteis a vuestra miseri­ cordia, porque me amáis más de lo que yo me puedo amar. Perdonad, Señora mía, la digresión que me arrebató la fuerza de la verdad; y si la he de confesar toda, también es buscar efu­ gios para huir la dificultad de responder, y casi me he determi­ nado a dejarlo al silencio; pero como éste es cosa negativa, aunque explica mucho con el énfasis de no explicar, es nece­ sario ponerle algún breve rótulo para que se entienda lo que se pretende que el silencio diga; y si no, dirá nada el silencio, porque ése es su propio oficio: decir nada.

Since the original text is lost, the issue of how to divide the poem has preoccupied many scholars: some divide it into twelve major progressive sections, made to resemble the twelve nocturnal hours; others suggest three: sleep, voyage, and awakening. Any way we look at it, faith in a universal order drives the quest, but the end brings only darkness, a clear sign of Sor Juana’s increasing skepticism. The poem has a strong Scholastic, Gnostic, and mystical foun­ dation, but it doesn’t parade its erudition in a presumptuous man­ ner.

The period between 1691 and 1693 in Mexico City was marked by heavy rains, floods, famine, and plague. The population blamed the viceroy for their suffering, and Indians stormed the viceregal palace, setting fire to it and to nearby buildings. In an important biographical essay of 1926, D orothy Schons writes that on June 8, 1692, “The Viceroy and his wife took refuge in the monastery of St. Francis. Everybody sought monasteries and other places of security. The soldiers were helpless. Hordes of In­ dians pillaged the plaza and the surrounding neighborhood.
