Transcript of Anne Bradstreet

Anne Bradstreet Anne Dudley was born in England in 1612... At age 16, she married Simon Bradstreet. Two years later, they set sail to America on a ship named Arabella. She was the first notable American poet. AND A WOMAN! Her poetry was very devotional, like most poetry of the time. (Poetry appreciated by the Puritans, at least.) What made Anne so special? Many of her poems focused on her personal life - children, husband, house, etc. (Of course, the poetry still held religious messages.) Due to her privileged circumstances, she was able to obtain something that few other women did during the time: AN EDUCATION! To My Dear and Loving Husband If ever two were one, then surely we.
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!!
