Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Institution
Norton, 1995 - 322 pages
Adrienne Rich's influential and landmark investigation concerns both the experience and the institution of motherhood.
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.
