Transcript of Anne Bradstreet
If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cAnneot quench, Nor ought but love from thee give recompense. Thy love is such I can no way repay.
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray. Then while we live, in love let's so persevere That when we live no more, we may live ever. thee = you
ye = you all
thy = your
doth = does Recompense - Payment in return for something Not intended for public view! Upon the Burning of Our House,
July 10th 1666 Bradstreet relies heavily on inverted syntax in this poem. What is inverted syntax? Inverted syntax is a reversal in the expected order of words. In silent night when rest I took... When I took rest... We are going to divide up into groups of three. Each group will be assigned one stanza (section of the poem). As a group, rewrite the poetry in your own words. You have exactly 7 minutes to do this, so stay on task!!
