Anne Bradstreet, or Ann Bradstreet, as spelling was not yet standardized in the 17th century,[1] (1612-1672) was one of the first American poets, and may have became the first when she wrote The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung up in America (1650).[2]

Life and Works

Bradstreet was born Anne Dudley in 1612 in England, where she married Simon Bradstreet, graduated from Cambridge University, and immigrated to Massachusetts.[3] She was a member of Winthrop's Puritan colony and the Puritan church in Boston, but most of her influence came from her prominent father and her husband, both of whom were governors of Massachusetts.[4] She wrote poems while raising eight children and moving about Massachusetts, and her brother-in-law John Woodbridge in England published them without her knowledge.[5] Her volume of poetry, The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up in America, was a popular collection of her own works that established poetry in early America.[6] After it was republished in America as Several Poems Compiled with Great Variety of Wit and Learning (1672), their Cambridge house burned down and she later died at age 60. The location of her grave is unknown.[7]
