Well this week we are talking about Rowland’s narrative and how it is often referred to as a jeremiad. One thing that we must notice is that this narrative is from a Puritans view point. There are always two sides of the story to every POW (Prisoner of War) situation. A jeremiad form what I can understand is a work of literature by Early settlers that explain why things happen to them. I do not agree that God punishes people so I cannot really see eye to eye with Rowlandson in her captivity narrative. At first when Lancaster was attacked and she witnessed friends and people of the settlement get killed and disemboweled I really felt bad that she was a prisoner. It had to be tuff for Rowlandson to see her youngest die and the other children sold as property. I did some extra research on this topic so please excuse me if I mention something that was not in the text. After reading the narrative I would have to say that her attitude towards the natives was surprisingly like the stereotype of the “Ugly American.” I have seen a lot of the examples of jeremiad style in Rowlandson’s narrative.
