Motherhood: Poems about Mothers

80,00 kn

From tenth-century Japan`s Izumi Shikibu, colonial America`s Anne Bradstreet, and Victorian England`s Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Israel`s Yehuda Amichai, Ireland`s Paul Muldoon, and Russia`s Anna Akhmatova, poets across the centuries and around the world have immortalized this elemental relationship. Among the more than seventy poets in this anthology, Audre Lorde recalls "How the days went / While you were blooming within me"; Jorie Graham muses on her mother`s sewing box; Allen Ginsberg says goodbye in "Kaddish"; and Langston Hughes invokes a mother`s empowering example: "Don`t you fall now- / For I`se still goin`, honey, / I`se still climbin`, / And life for me ain`t been no crystal stair." From Emily Bronte`s "Upon Her Soothing Breast" and Seamus Heaney`s "Mother of the Groom" to Sylvia Plath`s "Morning Song" and Frank O`Hara`s "Ave Maria," the more than one hundred poems collected here enshrine the miracle of motherhood and the richness of feeling and experience it inspires.
