After 350 years, the poetry and prose of America’s first poet is now accessible to students and scholars by concordance. Using McElrath and Robb’s The Complete Works of Anne Bradstreet as the base text for The Tenth Muse (1650), this concordance also incorporates all variant lines and words that appear in the 1678 ‘Several Poems’. In addition, every key word is indexed to Jeannine Hensley’s The Works of Anne Bradstreet, the most popular classroom edition of the poems. Key words and contexts retain the original spelling of the first edition, but all words are cross-referenced to variant and modern spellings – one of many features that make this volume a necessary companion to any edition of Bradstreet’s work.
