In the three pieces of literature, all characterize Puritan values and traditions. The main characteristics evident in the literature is the most important thing to Puritans is God, they devote everything they do to God, and they believe everyone must be dedicated or else they will go to Hell. From this, I can theorize the Puritans were a conservative, traditional, and very devout denomination of Christianity.
In Here Follow Some Verses upon the Burning of Our House, July 10, 1666 by Anne Bradstreet, the most detailed description of the Puritans is their carelessness for material possessions. A quote from the poem to model this is, "...I blest His name that gave and took, That laid my goods now in the dust. Yea, so it was, and so 'twas just. It was His own, it was not mine..." The basic gist of the poem is a puritan 's house catches fire and burns to the ground. From the quote you can see that even in the most dangerous and traumatic events, Puritans still were very faithful. Bradstreet also states material possessions are all properties of God and are irrelevant in your life. Puritans were selfless and took no more items than needed. Puritans focused everything
