Sor Juana, la poetisa: Los sonetos

Examine two of Sor Juana's sonnets in depth. Learners first listen to an audio recording or a reading of the sonnets and then analyze the structure and form, paying attention to elements of the Baroque and el gongorismo. Assess student work with a portfolio of completed work and an analysis essay that focuses on one of the poems.
