Representing mothers

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The author reflects on the problematic relationship between mothering and writing. She argues that the mother still is generally understood to be selflessly devoted to the nurturing of family, specially her children. The author also claims that the mother stands in direct opposition to the image of the male artist, who is generally aloof and passionately devoted to his art. She also explores several ways for mothers to address the problems associated with mothering and writing.
