Mother Love: Poems

by

Mother Love: Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In settings as various as a patio in Arizona, the bistros and boulevards of Paris, the sun-drenched pyramids of Mexico--and directly from the Greek myth itself--Rita Dove explores this relationship and the dilemma of letting go.

Synopsis:

Calling upon the ancient Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone, Mother Love examines the love between mother and daughter, two tumblers locked in an eternal somersault: each mother a daughter, each daughter a potential mother.

About the Author

Rita Dove, former U.S. Poet Laureate, Pulitzer Prize winner, and musician, lives in Charlottesville, where she is Commonwealth Professor of English at the University of Virginia.
