Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Institution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The experience is her own--as a woman, a poet, a feminist, and a mother--but it is an experience determined by the institution, imposed on all women everywhere. She draws on personal materials, history, research, and literature to create a document of universal importance.

Synopsis:

Adrienne Rich's influential and landmark investigation concerns both the experience and the institution of motherhood.

Synopsis:

'In order for all women to have real choices all along the line, ' Ardrienne Rich writes, 'we need fully to understand the power and powerlessness embodied in motherhood in patriarchal culture.'

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [287]-304).

About the Author

Adrienne Rich's honors include the National Book Foundation's Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. She lives in California.
