Background Info:
Bradstreet's Beliefs:
Anne Bradstreet was a Puritan, and the Puritans believed that in the afterlife their souls went to heaven, therefore, when she and her husband pass away, they will live forever in God's kingdom.
Bradstreet's faith and love views:
Bradstreet loves her husband, yes, but she can never go as far as to say she loves her husband more than God does.
Reward of the heavens:
Bradstreet has faith that God will reward her in many ways for her hard work and dedication to the Puritan ways and beliefs.
Belief on Marriage:
Bradstreet's Puritan(christian) beliefs state that if two are married, that they are not only bonded together physically, but spiritually, that two become one, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally by God.
Faith "To My Dear and Loving Husband" Anne Bradstreet - Haley Thorsen
"Then while we live, in love let's so persevere, that when we live no more, that we live ever."
Anne Bradstreet's desire to write, was considered very "Unladylike."
Bradstreet would have much rather kept her writings private, but they were soon made public by her brother in-law John Woodbridge in 1650.
Bradstreet and her husband, Simon, arrived in the Massachusetts bay colony in 1630.
Bradstreet likes to portray she and the Puritan's knowledge of the Bible in her writings.
"My love is such that rivers cannot 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."
"If ever two were one, by surely we. If ever man were lov'd by wife, than thee; if ever wife was happy in a man compare with me ye women if you can."
