Anne Bradsteet (1612–1669) was America's first published poet. She lived in England and the Colonies during a remarkable historic period marked by civil and religious strife and political upheaval.

Bradstreet's life and work challenge stereotypes of Puritans, revealing her vibrant intellectualism and her outspoken love for her husband.


“This book does a masterful job of performing the task identified in the subtitle—it is a guided tour of the life and work of Anne Bradstreet, conducted by a wonderfully talented tour guide. For anyone wishing to acquire or renew an acquaintance with Anne Bradstreet, this is the book of choice.”

—Leland Ryken, Wheaton College

“Puritan pioneer Anne Bradstreet, solid believer, ardent wife, faithful mother, wise woman, and gifted poetess, is a lady well worth meeting. Dr. Nichols arranges that meeting beautifully in these pages, and merits our gratitude for doing so.”

—Dr. J. I. Packer, Regent College

“Nichols not only illuminates the poet’s life and social context, she makes it possible for a new generation to savor Anne Bradstreet’s own words and to share the sorrows, joy, and hope of her inner journey.”

—Charles Hambrick-Stowe, Northern Seminary, Lombard, Illinois
