Multimedia website on the poetry of the seventeenth-century nun of New Spain (Nueva España) Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. Includes video clips.

This is a reputable source because it comes from Cambridge University.
It is a suitable website because it gives Key dates.

Primary Source - My Divine Lysis Poem

http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/my-divine-lysis/

This is the Poem My Divine Lysis in both Spanish and English written by Sor Juana.

This poem is suitable for the project because it is her work - which she shows her adoration for the vicereine. This is also some of her poetry that gets her in trouble because it is not about God or the Church.
This website is about poems - which makes it suitable for a primary source. It also gives both translations, which gives you the slow in Spanish and the translation I can understand.

This is the Spanish version of the poem First Dream.
It is a credible site for this project because it is a website dedicated to poems in Spanish from many Countries.
The Poem is important to the project because we are using it for a primary source to show the desire to understand the world.

Primary Source - Respuesta de la poetisa a la muy ilust....

This is the Spanish version of_ Respuesta de la poetisa a la muy ilustre
Sor Filotea de la Cruz_

This is a primary source that Sor Juana wrote in response to Sor Filotea.
This website is acceptable because it is from Dartmouth University that is promoted by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese.

This is a picture of the monument to Sor Juana in Madrid
This is a picture we used to show on the slide about her death and legacy. This picture seems to fit the fact that she is dead and left a legacy.
The website is a poem website that contains different pictures/portraits of Sor Juana and monuments to her. The pictures are real sites, which is good for this kind of research.

Primary Source - Book:

Cruz, Juana Inés De La. A Sor Juana Anthology. Translated by Alan S. Trueblood. Edited by Octavio Paz. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1988.

This anthology is a compilation of some of Sor Juana’s most significant works as well as history and context provided by the editor and translator. It also provides summaries of some of her poems in prose-form to clarify certain points in her flow of thought.

It is useful to the project because it gives clarity to her poems.
This is a good book for academics because it is an anthology book that gives history, poems, and details of said poems.
