Anne Bradstreet's "The Author to Her Book" I realize she is writing about her poems and not a child but where is the irony in that?
Did you read my previous post??
Is not the book her child....the product of her affair with the world? Unless you have written a book, it is difficult to conceive of the work as your child, but in fact, it is. You love to love it, and hate it.
