This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book analyses that Sor Juana Ins de la Cruz imitatio Horati, is strategically employed throughout the Respuesta. Sor Juana Ins political aesthetics enabled her to craft a carefully articulated defense of her position as female intellectual. While Sor Juana Ins was unable to compose a verse epitaph for her own death, as her last act of writing confession she scribbled from her deathbed in convents book of professions famously declared that she was la peor del mundo. Invoking her knowledge of Roman history and Latin philology, Sor Juana Ins frames her creative exegesis of scripture as a lesson for Sor Filotea. She demonstrates her understanding that, as an intellectual woman, she persecuted. Echoing Sor Juana Ins rhetorical move of inscribing herself into peninsular literary culture from the Spanish Empires periphery, in her memorial volume death becomes an opportunity for other Creole voices.
