‘The Author to Her Book’ is written entirely the first person. It is narrated by an unnamed narrator yet, due to the title, the reader can assume that the narrator is an author, but more specifically the author of the poem, Anne Bradstreet. The poem is written in one single stanza presenting the single idea of the narrator's displeasure with and her inability to fix the book. The title of the poem, “The Author to Her Book”, in many ways unlocks the secret of who or what the narrator's "ill formed offspring" (1) is. Since the title tells us that the author is speaking to her book we know that the offspring, the unnamed child that the narrator speaks to, is a personification of the book written by Bradstreet.

Do any words come to mind when one thinks of being “Spoken Into Creation”?

Song writes about his feelings of weightlessness that came with the nothingness of lost words. The poem expresses his journey to realization.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear to do something, “like a girl?” Do you find yourself flaring your hands in the air and swaying your hips when you are asked to run? Or do you find yourself throwing a baseball softly and clumsily when asked to pitch? In todays society there is a negative stigma with the phrase, “like a girl,” a stigma that more than often gets looked over and ignored.

This prompt lets me express myself, and that is why I chose it.
In the middle section of the poem, Stevens establishes the dominance of the artist; the woman is portrayed as the active and significant feature of the poem, while the sea is presented only as a location and becomes insignificant. Referring to the woman as the “maker of the song she sang” (15), it confirms her not only as the creator of art and the maker of her own version of reality, but also relates her to God, the maker of the world.
