    Examination of Puritan Philosophy in Bradford's "On Plymouth Plantation" The Puritan people first came to the New World to escape the religious persecution that hounded Non-Anglicans in England. They established the Plymouth Colony in 1620, in what is now Massachusetts. The colony was a reflection of the Puritans' beliefs.

  • 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. Indeed, Bradstreet's poems are filled with female presence. However, I also sense that Bradstreet's feminism is held in check by her Puritan values, and there is a conflict crea...
  • Plain Writings Of The Age Of Faith

In 1650, without her knowledge, Bradstreet's brother-in-law had many of her poems published in a collection called The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up In America. Although these poems did not reflect what would be her best work, they did emulate what would be the greatest influence on all of her writing. Anne Bradstreet's Puritan life was the ...

  • Puritan Religion And The Writers
    696 words
    Many writers in colonial America had religious and non-religious motives that greatly influenced the literature of the time. Some of the earliest American literature was written by puritan writers, which was greatly influenced by religion. Religion, just as it dominated the lives of Puritans, dominated their writing and was a major influence to all Puritan writers. The Puritans saw the purpose of writing as to provide spiritual insight and instruction. As a result almost of writings of the Purit...
  • Familiar To The Puritans
    481 words
    Anne Bradstreet's poetry reflects Puritan thinking like sunlight softly shimmering on a quiet country pond. There is life and much activity just below the quiet surface, yet one must look below to discover its depth. As the first notable poet in American literature, it is fitting that this young woman, a product of an atypical upbringing, should use her extensive education to express thought and emotion well beyond the writings of her time. Still, her writings always reflected the natural values...
