The Sovereignty and Goodness of God

Cultural references

  • Hilary Holladay's book of poems The Dreams of Mary Rowlandson (Loom Press, 2006) recreates her capture by Indians in poetic vignettes, using epigraphs from Rowlandson's own narrative in addition.[9]
  • Flight of the Sparrow, a novel by Amy Belding Brown (2014), reimagines Rowlandson's experiences as if she were a woman at odds with the strictures of her minister husband and Puritan culture in general. In the novel, Increase Mather edits and corrupts her manuscript, changing it to reflect a rigid world view that Mary has, through her experiences, grown beyond.
