to my dear and loving husband

Anne Bradstreet expresses her profound love and undying affection for her
husband. Bradstreet makes a point to enlighten her husband of her devotion
and longing as opposed to duty, which leaves the question whether or not
she reflected the Puritan lifestyle of her time. She conveys this message
through figurative language and declarative tone, using imagery,
repetition, and paradoxes.

This poem is awesome. This poem written in iambic penatmetre displays
poetic form in the rich rhyme scheme where she makes full use of
alliteration, assonance, consonance and masculine rhyme. It is a brilliant
description of unity of shared love between a man and a woman. MMMM makes
you want to love more.

this poem is'nt about a wives love for her husband but about the marridge
of jesus to the church, read the poem again with this in mind, its how she
gets around being a puritain at the time

This poem is truly amazing. It is so simple yet so powerful and deep. I
also find it a little strange how a Puritan woman could fall so deeply and
emotionally in love considering what the religion was like. But I really
think this can prove no matter what type of person you are and what beliefs
you have, love always exists and can conquer all. Just like she said "Then
while we live, in love let's so persevere".

This beautifully written poem I believe that introduces the love theme in
puritan america of the time.I find pretty strange the fact that a woman of
her time could express her most intimate feelings so widely open especially
when she knew that the puritan community in which she belonged would read
it.
