A literary analysis of Anne Bradstreet and her role in early American literature. The paper discusses her poem, "The Author to her Book," and its origins, as well as the roles women in the seventeenth century were expected to play.

From the Paper:

"The theme Bradstreet used when calling her work her offspring continued throughout the poem, and only emphasized her distinctive style of writing poetry. Her work was quite unlike the work of many male poets of the seventeenth century. Though she was very cautious in publishing her work, America and society found a brilliant Puritan writer of her time. Although society in that era looked down on women as published writers and intellectuals, Bradstreet's quality of work speaks for itself."
