Explication- Anne Bradstreet’s “To My Dear and Loving Husband” Anne Bradstreet, the first colonial female in Massachusetts Bay Colony to publish poetry, was a close friend and follower of Anne Hutchinson. Bradstreet supported Hutchinson’s antinomianism, the belief that faith alone was necessary for salvation. 15 years after Hutchinson was banished from Massachusetts Bay Colony for denouncing Puritan theology, Bradstreet published her poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband.” From contemporary perspective it literary reads as a normal love poem to her husband, however Bradstreet cleverly disguises her poem through figurative language to argue against Puritan belief. Through paradox and figurative language, Bradstreet disguises her denouncement of Puritan Ideology so that she could support Hutchinson’s ideology, without receiving the same fate as her friend. Bradstreet’s poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband” argues how an individual should live life on Earth opposed to the Puritan belief that one should devote all their time to God in order to seek salvation.

The second main point displayed in OBBFATA (lines 2-4) serves as Wheatley’s justification for the claim she makes in line 1: “Taught my benighted soul to understand/ That there’s a God, that there’s a Saviour too:/ Once I redemption neither sought nor knew”(219, 2-4).
