CORREA, ISABEL (Rebecca) DE (c. 1650), Dutch Sephardi poetess. Born in Portugal, she lived in Flanders and later in Amsterdam. She was the second wife of Nicolas (Daniel Judah) de Oliver y Fullana , the Majorcan author and cartographer, who reverted to Judaism. The poet barrios described her as being "as celebrated for her beauty as for her wit." Isabel Correa is remembered as the translator of Guarini's Pastor Fido (1694) into Spanish, an enterprise that apart from its literary value is a mirror of feminine writing. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Kayserling, Bibl, 39; Brugmans-Frank, 455; Roth, Marranos, 335, 337; Scholberg, in: JQR, 53 (1962/63), 145f.
