PRIMERA PARTE Esta parte de la prueba consta de 6 preguntas, de la 1 a la 6. A continuación se le presentan dos textos que usted deberá leer con atención y, EXCLUSIVAMENTE con base en ellos, contestará las preguntas de esta parte. At her death in 1695 Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz left a remarkable body of writing—religious, courtly, and popular poems in a wide variety of verse forms; intellectual treatises; religious and secular plays; a long epistemological poem, “Primero sueño”; and an autobiographical essay, the ‘Respuesta a Sor Filotea”, which, to date, remains the most reliable literary portrait we have of this woman of genius. What we know of Sor Juana merely awakens our appetite for further information. We are unsure of the date of her birth. We do not know whether she ever knew her father. We know approximately when she was sent to Mexico City to live with her mother’s sister, but not why. We can approximate the dates of her life in court under the protection and patronage of the Marqués and Marquesa de Mancera, but we know nothing of the everyday details of those years. We can only speculate as to why at the height of her popularity and in the full flush of her beauty she left the court to enter the convent. In addition to the guesses we can make from her writing, and besides the autobiographical “Respuesta”, and the nearly contemporary biography written by Father Diego Callejas, we have only a handful of birth, death, and marriage records relating to her family, and a few papers concerning Sor Juana’s entrance into and subsequent professions of faith in first the Carmelite Order, and then the Convent of Saint Jerome, where she died. “Sor Juana Inés” by Margaret Sayers (adapted) 1. According to the text, biographical material on Sor Juana is accurate in its general content, abundant in chronological information distorted for the study of her work insufficient for understanding her life.
2. The reasons Sor Juana entered the convent are clear. dubious. unknown mystical.
3. When the author says “the most reliable literary portrait”, he means that the information is trustful the details are perfect the details are correct the information is true.
Who was Dame Agatha Christie? Her father was a rich American financier, but she grew up in the English countryside among the genteel upper middle—class society she describes so well in bar books. During the First World War, she married Colonel Christie and served as a nurse. From her experience in hospitals at the time, she developed an interest in poisons which was to be so useful to her later in many of her stories. .She divorced her husband in 1928 and a few years later, married Sir Max Mallowan, a young archaeologist. She accompanied him on many of his expeditions and drew from them the plot of several of her novels. Agatha Christie started writing just after World War I, as a kind of challenge.
