American poet Anne Bradstreet.

Anne Bradstreet

(c. 1612 - 1672)

Anne Bradstreet intended her verse for her family of eight children. Without her knowledge or permission, one of her brothers-in-law carried her early poems to England and had them published in 1650 under the title The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up in America, thus making her the first published American poet.
