The Emma Press Anthology of Motherhood is a beautiful collection of poems about motherhood. Thirty-two poets from around the world consider motherhood from a variety of perspectives, writing sensitively as and about children and mothers, expectant mothers, and women contemplating motherhood. The collection as a whole celebrates mothers as well as (or, possibly, by) acknowledging the strain and complexity of feelings associated with the state of motherhood.
