Product Description

Publisher's Description

Anne Bradstreet (1612-1669) was America's first published poet. She lived in England and the Colonies during a remarkable historic period marked by civil and religious strife and political upheaval. Bradstreet's life and work challenge stereotypes of Puritans, revealing a vibrant intellectualism and her outspoken love for her husband. "Puritan pioneer Anne Bradstreet, solid believer, ardent wife, faithful mother, wise woman, and gifted plain-style poetess, is a lady well worth meeting. Dr. Nichols arranges that meeting beautifully in these pages, and merits our gratitude for doing so." — J. I. Packer “This book does a masterful job of performing the task identified in the book's subtitle—it is a guided tour of the life and work of Anne Bradstreet, conducted by a wonderfully talented tour guide. This edition of the poet's poetry and prose does everything right: it provides a full introduction to the poet and her times, it includes an enticing array of illustrations from the poet's era, it presents the individual poems and prose pieces in a reader-friendly form with brief introductions to each text, and it includes a nicely selective bibliography of sources at the end. For anyone wishing to acquire or renew an acquaintance with Anne Bradstreet, this is the book of choice.” — Leland Ryken, Wheaton College
