    1. "Los empeños de una casa es una comedia básica y sencilla, solo complicada por el lenguaje y la manera de narrarla, cuestión de acostumbrarse y no tener miedo a recomenzar la lectura en más de una ocasión. En este libro me sucedió como con Shakespeare, me da la impresión de haber leído algo así"La reseña completa en: contraelpromediomexicano/2

    2. Kind of a fun crazy comedy of errors. Hard to believe it was written by a nun in the 1600s. She had a bit of razor wit.

    3. This is a play that is under consideration for the 2017-2018 season at SUNY Sullivan.

It's an overdone but typically winning formula.A note acknowledging my limitations: My Spanish isn't bad, but I struggled to make sense of [...]

    5. Una de las obras clásicas de Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, escrita totalmente en verso. Por momentos romántica, por momentos dramática, por momentos cómica. Vale la pena leerla despacio y disfrutar las rimas y juegos de palabras que se van entretejiendo para ir formando la historia.
