Anne Bradstreet

a.k.a. Anne Bradstreet (nee Dudley)

Author Code: AADB

Born: 1612 - Northampton, England

Died: Sep. 16, 1672 - Andover, Massachusetts, USA

Anne, the daughter of Thomas Dudley - steward to the Earl of Lincoln, married Simon Bradstreet in 1628. At that time, Bradstreet, a Cambridge University graduate, was an assistant in the Massachusetts Bay Company. In 1630, the Dudleys and Bradstreets emigrated to America in the hope of setting up a plantation colony. Dudley became the Deputy-Governor of the Boston settlement, under John Winthrop, and Simon became the chief administrator of the colony. Anne suffered under the harsh conditions and lack of food and her health was often poor. Nevertheless, she managed to have eight children. Simon travelled much of the time and thus, Anne spent a great deal of her time on her own and educating her children. A well-educated woman, Anne began to write poetry for her own enjoyment and that of her close friends. Her brother-in-law copied her work without her knowledge and took it to England for publication. In 1650, the collection was published as The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up in America, By a Gentlewoman of Those Parts and achieved a fair amount of success in England. This was the only work that was published during her lifetime. Today she is considered to be the first American poet and the first woman to have a book published in the United States. The years of illness and privations took its toll and Anne succumbed to tuberculosis in 1672. Her posthumously published work included Several Poems Compiled with Great Variety of Wit and Learning (1678).
