Transcript of Anne Bradstreet

Anne Bradstreet was born in England in 1612 to well-connected Puritan parents.
Her father, Thomas Dudley, was unusual in his commitment to teaching his daughter literature, history, and philosophy.
Bradstreet benefited from an extensive classical education such as was usually reserved only for male children.
Anne Bradstreet
America's First Poet
Bradstreet married her father's assistant, Simon Bradstreet, and immigrated to America with her husband and parents in 1630 and settled in Massacusetts.

She later admitted that her "heart rose" in protest against the "new world and new manners" she encountered when she landed in Massachusetts.

Bradstreet overcame her resentment and made a life for herself as a dutiful and respected Puritan daughter, wife, and mother.

Bradstreet's poetry is notable for the tensions it reveals between her affection for the things of this world—home, family, natural beauty—and her Puritancommitment to shunning earthly concerns in order to focus on the spiritual.

The passion she felt for her husband and her children are poignantly balanced by her reminders to herself that such attachments should remain secondary to her love for Christ.
