What can we said about The Baralt Sisters?
Mercedes and Luce, daughters of Jose Lopez-Baralt and Emma Cardona, are lawyers by profession and intellectuals by vocation. From their parents the sisters learn to love literature. They are considered respected critics of the Hispanic and Arabic literature.
Mercedes specialized in the native Central and South American literature and the Quechua tongue. Luce specialized in the Arabic tongue and its literature. Both are professors at the University of Puerto Rico that have dedicated their life to literature and the teaching of it as a mystical experience.
