Anne Bradstreet - LIFE STORIES
 
 
9/16/1672     Bradstreet, Berryman, Wheatley
On this day in 1672 Anne Bradstreet, the first published poet of the American colonies, died. Many of her poems are conventional, but others have personality and a New World edge: "I am obnoxious to each carping tongue, / Who sayes, my hand a needle better fits. . . ." Such lines inspired John Berryman to Homage to Mistress Bradstreet, the collection which brought him first fame.

Bradstreet biography and recommended links, including an index of her poems.

"Bradstreet's poetics belong to the Elizabethan literary tradition that includes Spenser and Sidney; she was also strongly influenced by the sixteenth century French poet Guillaume du Bartas. Her early work, which is imitative and conventional in both form and content, is largely unremarkable, and her work was long considered primarily of historical interest. She has, however, won critical acceptance in the twentieth century for her later poetry, which is less derivative and often deeply personal."
