 PAL:Anne Bradstreet(1612?-1672)
Bradstreet confessed that the scarcity of food, sickness, and the "primitive living conditions of the New England outpost," caused her heart to rise in protest of the "new world and new manners" (Martin 29).
Bradstreet's work demonstrates that she had difficulty "resolving the conflict she experienced between the pleasures of sensory and familial experience and the promise of heaven" (30).
Bradstreet's love of nature, written in one of her later poems titled "Contemplations" is reminiscent of the Romantics attitude toward nature and man. Josephine Piercy wonders if the Romantics were influenced by Bradstreet, as her poems were widely read (101).

 Identifying with a New England poet who blazed an early trail - The Boston Globe
Bradstreet, Gordon writes, is ''a likable poet." Students to whom she has read Bradstreet's poetry ''have been thrilled by her passion and slang, her formality and humor" -- the ''passion" revealing itself especially in the deeply felt expressions of longing for her husband.
Gordon has a clear engagement with Bradstreet, and the major accomplishment of this lively biography is in showing that she is as exceptional a person as the 17th-century New England she lived in.
Her husband, Simon Bradstreet, whom she had married at 16, two years before they left England for the new colony, would serve two terms as governor.
