Anne Bratstreet

Wrote about her love for her family and faith


Her poetry was published in The Tenth Muse in London 1650. Anne wrote her poetry about her love for her family and her faith. Her personal library of books was said to have numbered over 9000, although many were destroyed when her home burned down. This event itself inspired a poem titled "Upon the Burning of Our House July 10th, 1666".

Much of Bradstreet's poetry is based on observation of the world around her, focusing heavily on domestic and religious themes, and was considered by Cotton Mather a monument to her memory beyond the stateliest marble.
