    The first book of poems by an English settler of America. One of the first books of poems published by a woman in the English language. In its own right, a compelling sequence of poems anchored by AB's "Quaternions"--the four elements, humors, and monarchies--which put forward a relational vision of the elements and body that speak back, wittily, to masculanist visions of the working of the body, the prioritization of choler and heat (thanks Tamara Harvey). The victory of phlegm--cool, terse ligament, jelly--is stunning. The monarchies will read to many as tedious, representing the succession of Assyrian, Persian, Greek, and Roman kings as an Ovidian tantrum spiral with all the fun gore informatized out of it. But maybe that's the point, a flattening of the epic, a deglam-ing of war in which Bradstreet pays particular attention to the fates of women, children, and the innocent. See also here compelling links to other American poets interested in history and its silences--Howe, particularly.Reception of Bradstreet has passed over this book in favor of her handful of more autobiographical, short lyric poems and that makes sense. TTM is operating in a renaissance poetics at ease with natural philosophy/science whose value has only been recently re-evaluated, particularly when it intersects with lucretian materialism. Particles, clinamen and shit.
