The poets write with searing honesty about the incredible strength and capacity for self-sacrifice demanded by motherhood, writing as parents as well as in relation to their own parents. The darkest thoughts of exhausted mothers are sensitively portrayed, as poets expose the weight of responsibility behind the hallowed state of motherhood, and question the expectations society places on mothers. This book gives voice to universal but usually silenced anxieties, showing mothers questioning their ability to raise their children correctly and sometimes struggling to connect with the creatures they have created. Heart-breaking and uplifting in equal measure, this book is a stunning and varied portrait of modern motherhood.
