consider the ideals, values, and themes that early American writers considered to be important and worthy of inclusion in their journals, sermons, and poems. What are these ideals and values? Why were they important? How do different writers incorporate them into their works? Did certain values or ideals seem to become more or less important over time? If so, why? Cite specific examples from the writings of Bradford, Winthrop, Bradstreet, and Edwards in your response. I dont really get this? :/

    I am not originally American and I don't know any of those names but the question is asking you to think about what the early American writers considered important. This could be an ideal, as in what they thought was perfect, or would be perfect if it could happen. It could also be a value, which is something they think is necessary, like children listening to their parents. Themes are like ideas that they talked about. You are being asked to state things and why the early writers thought they were important, and how they showed this in what they wrote. Is something that was once important not that important anymore? Why or not?
