visión de conjunto:Reseña del editor From a very young age Juana Inés loved words. When she was three years old she followed her sister to school and begged the teacher to let her stay so she could learn how to read. Juana enjoyed poring over books and was soon making up her own stories songs and poems.Juana wanted to become a scholar but career options for women were limited at this time.
