The Prologue Tough-o-Meter

By Anne Bradstreet

Tough-o-Meter

(6) Tree Line

There's no way to get around it. This is an old poem. That makes our climb a little harder, since we have to scramble over some old-fashioned vocabulary, and deal with some references to things like ancient Greece that maybe aren't so familiar anymore. This is also a really beautiful poem though, so (with a little help from your pals at Shmoop) it should make for a rewarding climb.
