Just What I Was Looking For! Dec 18, 2006
Hiedi Nichols is an apt tour guide, not only of Anne Bradstreet, but also of the basics of her Puritan background. This book was exactly what I was looking for. Ms. Nichols supplies a breif, readable, and well-informed biography of Anne Bradstreet. She also supplies a view of English and New England Puritanism. She also includes selections of Anne's poetry with brief introductory remarks. Finally, a word must be said regarding Ms. Nichol's provision of illustrations and biblographical notes. Many digital reproductions of portraits and title pages are interspersed. What else would you expect from a guided tour? All in all, this is a job well done. Nichols proves that she is well aware of the feminists who have tried to take Anne captive and interpret her according to their own agenda, but she doesn't give in to such schemes. I heartily give this book a five-star rating.
