She also has a rhythmic tone to her style of writing with sweet figurative language and many tributes to her family and friends. “The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.” (Bradstreet 116) Her love for her husband is immense, so in fact that she thinks only the heavens could reward such a bond like theirs. “Thy love is such I can no way repay, the heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.” (Bradstreet 116) Bradstreet’s religious beliefs are primarily to live for God and family, as the Puritans believe in lots of worship to the Lord. “And to my God my heart did cry to strengthen me in my distress and not to leave me succorless.” (Bradstreet 116) God is seen to be above all and is the highest power as she compares him to an architect.

If it weren 't for her, maybe people wouldn 't see women as the strong and independent individuals we are capable of being.

Uncle Tom’s Cabin reformed the meaning of Christian religion during a period when most modern and corrupt churches weren’t standing against slavery, and sometimes encouraged it (Reynolds 1). As revealed in avid Civil War historian, Lyle Cullen Sizer’s work, Stowe’s animosity towards slavery emerged from her belief that it was un- Christian and her duty to end it (35). Stowe grew increasingly upset with the religious’ response to the strengthening of the fugitive slave law (Sizer 35). Previously, she thought that engaging in arguments of slavery was unnecessary, however, after seeing the minister’s response she said, “‘The time is come” when all must speak, “Even a woman or child’” (qtd.

In the poems “To My Dear and Loving Husband” and “Upon the Burning of Our House” the author Anne Bradstreet allows the reader a glimpse of what she values. The two poems are alike because they both explore her religion and show her love for God. In these two poems they let you get a glimpse of the way she looked at things and saw the good side of everything.

These two sentences show that she loves her husband with all her love and he loves her very much and she says that even if there was a man who could love her more she wouldn’t give him up.
