From the Paper:

"Anne Bradstreet lived and wrote poetry during the middle decades of the 17th century. At that time, she was incredibly steeped in Puritan tradition, owing to her cultural heritage and upbringing. This fact is incredible evident in her poetry, as it expresses many of the dominant themes of Puritanism. This essay examines two of Bradstreet's more recognized works - "To My Dear and Loving Husband" and "Verses Upon the Burning of Our House." The two poems will be compared in order to demonstrate how both works are an expression of Puritan ideology, namely the primacy of men and God. "To My Dear and Loving Husband" is a poem about just what the title would have readers believe. Amazingly, there is no irony or sarcasm lurking beneath Bradstreet's lines."
