Bradstreet, Anne (Dudley),

c.1612–1672, early American poet, b. Northampton, England, considered the first significant woman author in the American colonies. She came to Massachusetts in the Winthrop Puritan group in 1630 with her father, Thomas Dudley, and her husband, Simon Bradstreet, both later governors of the state. A dutiful Puritan wife who raised a large family, she nevertheless found time to write poetry. In 1650 her first volume of verse appeared in London as The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up in America. It was followed by Several Poems (Boston, 1678), which contains "Contemplations," probably her best work. Her verses are often derivative and formal, but some are graced by realistic simplicity and genuine feeling.

Bradstreet, Anne (b. Dudley)

(c. 1612–72) poet; born in (?)Northampton, England. Educated privately, she married Simon Bradstreet; they were among the first to settle the Massachusetts Bay Colony (1630), of which he would twice serve as governor. She lived in Ipswich (1635–45), then settled in North Andover (1645–72), all the while raising eight children under difficult conditions. She is known as the first English poet in America; her work, The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up in America (1650), was published in England without her knowledge. Her early poetry was in a derivative literary style but her later poems (published posthumously in 1678) have a more direct, human tone.
