American Women’s Poetry

October 17 @ 1:00 pm

$10

Morven welcomes Dr. Deborah Greenhut to discuss Annis Boudinot Stockton’s poetry within the context of the founding mothers of women’s literary culture in a comparison of those themes with contemporary social media.  From earliest colonial times in the 17th century, American women have been recording their thoughts about American home life and nudging these ideas into the public sphere through poetry and other narratives. Anne Bradstreet, the daughter of one Colonial Governor and the spouse of another, had her book published in England (1650). During the 18th century, Annis Boudinot Stockton, whom George Washington nicknamed “the elegant muse of Morven,” contributed numerous entries to this sphere. During the 19th century, Godey’s Lady’s Book was launched, and later, Emily Dickinson’s first book, published. Together their works constitute the first iteration of social publication in America.  Plan to tour Morven’s newly imagined first floor galleries before or after this enlightening discussion.
