Bradstreet had 8 children and many of her poems were written to her children. Bradstreet also wrote poems about her children. To My Dear Children “This book by any yet unread, I leave for you when I am dead, that being gone, here you may find what was your living mother’s mind. Make sure of what I leave in love, and God shall bless you from above” (Baym, 2013, Pg. 123).

She realizes that all God 's children are destined for heaven regardless of the color of their skin, the amount of money or land they have, and their mental state only after their sins have been forgiven. She has come to this realization through the violence and hatred at the hands of the girl at the doctor’s office reading Human Development, which is probably what Mrs. Turpin needs to be reading, through her veil of contempt, who has seen Ruby as she truly is.

Once Marie realizes that her background isn’t something to be ashamed of or something evil she leaves the convent. However, the trauma continues to haunt her throughout her life. Her hatred towards Christianity allows to keep herself in check but in “Flesh and Blood” when she goes to see Sister Leopolda on her deathbed her trauma is manifested when she tries to prove her strength at whatever cost. “I would get that spoon,” shows how desperate Marie was to reclaim that power that Sister Leopolda had taken away from her when she was a child (Erdrich).

While both poets try to be optimistic about the death of their loved ones, Wheatley, the more religious poet of the two, emphasizes the importance of religion by using her almost artistic sculpting of descriptive adjectives and robust nouns such as “The glowing stars and silver queen of light/ At last must perish in the gloom of night” and in using this word choice, she shows how much weight her religion holds (19-20). As Wheatley praises her God and his doings in her poem, Bradstreet makes sure to underline how much her relationship with her husband and kids mean to her. “Look to my little babes, my dear remains./ And if thou love thyself, or loved’st me,/
Anne Bradstreet and John Edwards both puritans but both had very different ways in showing their beliefs to puritans and other readers or crowds.
