Who Was Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz?

In 1667, owing to her desire "to have no fixed occupation which might curtail my freedom to study," Sor Juana began her life as al nun. She moved in 1669 to the Convent of San Geronimo (St. Jerome) in Mexico City, where she remained cloistered for the rest of her life.
