Products Description

Author: Douglas Wilson

As was true of the seventeenth-century Puritans Anne Bradstreet was a colorful lively passionate artful and delightful person who took great relish in life and reveled in the earthly manifestations of beauty goodness and truth. Born in Lincolnshire England she moved to Massachusetts Bay Colony with her husband Simon Bradstreet in 1630.

A Puritan through and through she imbibed from the deep wells of Puritan thought all her life. She not only accepted the social cultural and political mores of those Puritan stalwarts without hesitation she embraced them with gusto. It was in that context and out of that milieu that she produced America's first great literary works.

Beyond Stateliest Marble affords us a facinating glimpse into the life and labors of a gifted poet and a startling reassessment of the Puritan world and its impact on the founding of America. Thus it is a welcome addition to the annals of Christian moral philosophy and a resplendent reminder of this literary legacy.

"What Beyond Stateliest Marble affords us is not only a fascinating glimpse into the life and labors of a gifted poet but also a startling reassessment of the entire Puritan world and its impact upon the destinies of men and nations. In other words Douglas Wilson has accomplished with this book what every biographer ought to accomplish: He has enlightened for us an entire age and not just a single representation of that age.""
