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.

Anne Bradstreet's Poem

- Anne Bradstreet's Poem "To my Dear and Loving Husband" Anne Bradstreet?s poem, ?To my Dear and Loving Husband. presents a beautiful love theme. "Of ever two were one, then surely we" (1).
