Summary
Like other true poets, Anne Bradstreet enlivened the conventions she received, transforming them into a unique and vigorous instrument. But she did not use that instrument for small or temporary ends. Her work is very much a whole. This study aims to look at the whole body of her poetry as she encountered prevailing literary forms and fashioned them into a personal voice for an ever deepening argument between the world she knew and the promise of a greater world to come. - Preface
