Poetry and the literary culture I'm growing in a milk carton

Whopee! I got a whole new format. The background, which you may be able to see, faintly, if the page is loading right, is the opening page of a book about 17th century nun and poet, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz. She was an extraordinary writer and renown wit, until the patriarchy shut her down. Bad patriarchs, bad. There's a very good film made about her life, from the 50's or 60's I believe. Cruz is supposed to have scribbled on this very page.
