Anne Bradstreet's Poem, To My Dear and Loving Husband - Anne Bradstreet Anne Bradstreet lived in a time when devotion in a wife to her husband was a social law. This poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband,” is a loving tribute from Bradstreet to her husband.

The Angel of the Odd: Accepting What Is Odd - "The Angel of the Odd - An Extravaganza" is an E. A. Poe's tale written in 1844, which seems to be more absurdly comic than deep. In this story, Poe writes about humans exposed to odd situations, and he tries to tell us that it would be ridiculous for us to be against the odd. The writer portraits himself inside a guiltless character who believes, after reading about the freak death of a man, that all situations labeled as something odd are "a contemptible falsehood- a poor hoax- the lees of the invention of some pitiable penny-a-liner." By this sentence, the character claims that the oddest things are those which are told to be odd, and he reveals himself as a person with such a squared mind that it is impossible for him to give credibility an important space....   [tags: Edgar Allan Poe] 303 words
