To My Husband and Other Poems
From America's first poet — a splendid selection of poems encompassing everything from lyric verses addressed to her husband and children to somber epitaphs on the deaths of her mother, father, and grandchildren. Poems grouped according to category (love, home life, religious meditations, dialogues, and lamentations). Of great literary value, these works also shed light on the cares, concerns and roles of colonial women.
