  • American Poet Anne Bradstreet
    801 words
    Anne Bradstreet: American Poet Anne Bradstreet is seen as a true poetic writer for the seventeenth century. She exhibits a strong Puritan voice and is one of the first notable poets to write English verse in the American colonies. Bradstreet's work symbolizes both her Puritan and feminine ideals and appeals to a wide audience of readers. American Puritan culture was basically unstable, with various inchoate formations of social, political, and religious powers competing publicly. Her thoughts ar...
  • Great Female Queen Elizabeth
    555 words
    There are not too many "major" female writers in American Literature, and writing, traditionally, has always been viewed as a masculine activity. It is therefore very interesting, and even ironic, that the first author published in the newly established Puritan society on the American soil, Anne Bradstreet, was a female.

Anne Br...

    Bradstreet was the first poet in America to publish a volume of poetry. The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up in America was published in England in 1650. Bradstreet had lived in England until 1630, when at the age of 18 she arrived in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, where she spent the rest of her life. Although Bradstreet wrote many poems on familiar British themes and produced skilled imitations of British forms, her most remarkable works responded directly to her experiences in colonial New England....
  • Bradstreet's Eccentric Attitude Towards Life
    945 words
    During Anne Bradstreet's time period, women were not considered very intelligent. They did not have a high role in society, and were often regarded with low respects. Traditionally, women stay humble through out their entire life, while never attempting to differ from the societal boundaries set for them. However, Anne Bradstreet's eccentric personality leads her to deviate from these societal norms, which is also reflected in her innovative poetry. Looking into Bradstreet's humble and belied at...
