Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A mosaic of memories, the poems of This Country of Mothers recollect Julianna Baggotts experiences as both mother and daughter. With wit, compassion, aggression, and anxiety, Baggott examines her maternal history. She recalls moments of creation and destruction in her life, times of elation and of desperation that mold her as both a woman and a poet. This affecting study of motherhood is framed in issues of Catholicism and of poetry itself, challenging and espousing the roles of both. Throughout her poems, Baggotts personal experiences embrace universal themes to birth poems in a language and style that is both powerfully feminine and accessibly human.
