The Divine Narcissus is the best-known sacramental auto of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. It identifies the mythological Narcissus with Christ, who sees not his own reflection, but his resemblance in Human Nature, so it is a reworking of the Greek myth of Narcissus from the Catholic religious imaginary.
The divine Narcissus
has allegorical, mythological characters and a small participation of biblical characters. Thus, Human Nature, the protagonist, dialogues with Synagogue and Gentility, confronts Echo and Pride.
Narcissus, beautiful son of the nymph Liriope and the river Cephissus personifies the beauty of adolescence.
The Divine Narcissus alludes to the theme of the conquest of America and the traditions of the native peoples of the continent. Sor Juana takes advantage of an Aztec rite, represented by a tocotín, in honor of Huitzilopochtli to introduce veneration of the Eucharist and link pre-Columbian beliefs with Hispanic Catholicism.
The title of this sacramental auto alludes to The Divine Orpheus, by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Calderón is, most likely, the writer who most influenced the dramatic work of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.
This work is a jewel of the New Spanish Baroque. It was published in 1689 for staging in Madrid. It was dedicated to the Countess of Paredes de Nava and Marchioness consort of La Laguna.
