Please help me find books and articles on Anne Bradstreet. Also, about that historical period.
For books, go to WorldCat and search her name. It looks like a few are biographical, so will discuss some history.
For more history, I conducted a subject search on su: New England--History--Colonial period, ca. 1600-1775. You can copy and paste that whole phrase.
For literature criticism articles, go to the Literature tab in our Databases by Subject LibGuide and search for her as a subject. Some articles will discuss her work in a historical context.
