Compelling essays which underline the central place pregnancy and
childbirth hold in women's writing. Embracing three centuries of
prose and poetry, the anthology traces the evolution of American
maternity literature, exploring the difficulties mothers faced as
they struggled to transform themselves from objects into maternal
subjects. Women as diverse as Anne Bradstreet, Anne Sexton, Sharon
Olds, Kate Chopin, Toni Morrison, and Louise Erdrich all labored to
reclaim the birthing process by giving voice to experiences and
emotions long devalued by a patriarchal culture. Their voices
resonate throughout this collection.
