Anne Bradstreet, Puritan Poet

By Brenda B. Covert
1     Anne Bradstreet was America's first woman poet. She was a Puritan who sailed to America from England. In England, she had been a young woman of noble birth. Her family was wealthy and could provide a very good education for her. She studied history, literature, languages, music, and dance.
 
2     Anne had become the wife of Simon Bradstreet at the age of 16. He was the son of a Puritan minister. Two years later, Anne and Simon emigrated from England with her parents and many other Puritans. They took a ship across the Atlantic Ocean and arrived in New England at the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Both Anne's father, Thomas Dudley, and her husband served as its governor at different times.
 
3     Life in colonial New England was not like Anne's life in her British homeland. It was like starting over with nothing! However, she and her husband made a home for themselves. They had eight children, and Anne taught them at home. Simon found success in politics. His work involved a lot of travel.
