Women of Light, Baroque Passion I

Primero Sueño (Early dreams) is a journey of the senses through the passionate poetry of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (1648-1695), a legendary figure of the Mexican Baroque. Inflamed with an inextinguishable desire to learn, and to love, she was in turn a mystic, writer, scientist and composer, defying the laws and constraints of her era.

“I am the Light among the rays, enjoying the blazing sun.” Sor Juana Inès de la Cruz
