              Comedia de capa y espada, en cuya representacion participo la misma autora dejando atonitas a su companeras de claustro. Esta obra narra la historia de dos hermanos Don Pedro y Dona Ana que viven juntos en Toledo. Ambos estan enamorados y deberan pasar por una serie de equivocos ...y enredos antes de conseguir, por medio de estratagemas, seducir a sus amados. El argumento, propio del siglo XVII en que fue escrita la obra, encuentra, gracias a la originalidad de su autora, un final impredecible donde se unen lo real y lo alegorico. A 'cloak and dagger' comedy, in which the author herself performed, leaving her fellow nuns speechless. This work tells the story of a brother and sister, Don Pedro and Dona Ana, who live together in Toledo. Both are in love and must pass through a series of mistakes and misadventures before managing, by various strategems, to seduce their respective beloved. The plot, very much a 17th century storyline, thanks to the originality of the author, finds its way to an unpredictable end where the real and the allegorical meet.

              Pirate Women: The Princesses, Prostitutes, and Privateers Who Ruled the Seven Seas (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In the first-ever comprehensive survey of the world's female buccaneers, Pirate Women: The Princesses, Prostitutes, and Privateers Who Ruled the Seven Seas tells of the women, both real and legendary, who through the ages sailed alongside-and sometimes in command of-their male co...unterparts. These women came from all walks of life but had one thing in common: a desire for freedom. History has largely ignored these female swashbucklers, until now. Here are their stories, from ancient Norse warriors like Awilda, Stikla, and Rusla; to Sayyida al-Hurra of the Barbary corsairs; from Grace O'Malley, who terrorized shipping operations around the British Isles during the reign of Queen Elizabeth; to Cheng I Sao, who commanded a fleet of 400 ships off China in the early 19th century. Author Laura Sook Duncombe also looks beyond the stories to the storytellers and mythmakers. What biases and agendas motivated them? What did they leave out? Pirate Women explores why and how these stories are told and passed down and how history changes depending on who is recording it. It's the largest overview of women pirates in one volume and chock-full of swashbuckling adventures. In this book, pirate women are pulled from the shadows into the spotlight that they deserve.

              The Souls of Black Folk

              The Souls of Black Folk is a cornerstone of African-American literary history. Published in 1903, this seminal book of essays incited many white supremacists who discredited it as dangerous and imaginative. Drawing upon his own personal experiences of racism, Du Bois argued that ...African Americans are forced to wear a veil of color line, that is, they are forced to live their race every single day of their lives. This is why a strong political Black leadership must emerge from within the community and continue the fight for their rights. A century later, African Americans are still fighting these personal and political battles against racism and Du Bois' words have never run as true as they are now. W. E. B. Du Bois (1868-1963) was an American sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, and editor. He was the first African American to earn a doctorate and to become a professor of history, sociology and economics at Atlanta University. Du Bois was one of the co-founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and a prominent the leader of the Niagara Movement, a group of African-American activists who wanted equal rights for blacks.
