Never too young to die sort of idea, very accessible
Also wrote hymns
The focus of the poem is always on the individuals religious progress
Lots of iambic pentameter
His idea is to distract the child in the pleasure of performance
Children get caught up in divine delight, his goal is not to terrify the children (pleasant
poem in addition to its theological message, and very visual)
Highly attuned to child psychology and pedagogical theory
Counting on the poets capacity to move his reader in form as much as content
Positive sense of the performer, anyone is capable of virtue or piety (sense of improvable
person)
General message: keeps things on the sunny side, celebration, some criticism of vice,
greater concern with ordinary daily life against quarrelling and fighting, bigger picture of
the daily picture of the Puritan child through Watts, insight into child history, temptation
to be vain about your clothing)
Love between brothers and sisters and obedience is recommended
Sherwood Pg: 259-265
One of the most intense of child writers, convert people in the empire
Truly horrific book of moral instruction for children, often times very morbid
Very colorful write, details about daily life in addition to the didactic content
Children at their daily tasks, mundane details; historical significance, domestic details like
breakfast etc
Manages to take something thats completely ordinary and make it very dramatic
Great skill at vivid description, child characters are very believable. They do all sorts of
believable things but they also rebelbut they always receive their punishment so thats
their moral lesson
Mrs. Barter (gossiper): notice the name of the gossiper
