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.

Compelling essays which underline the central place pregnancy and childbirth hold in women’s writing.

Women as diverse as Anne Bradstreet, Anne Sexton, Sharon Olds, Kate Chopin, Toni Morrison, and Louise Erdrich all labored to reclaim the birthing process by giving voice to experiences and emotions long devalued by a patriarchal culture. Their voices resonate throughout this collection.

Reproducing Rome

Reproducing Rome is a study of the representation of maternity in the Roman literature of the first century CE, a period of intense social upheaval and reorganization as Rome was transformed from a Republic to a form of hereditary monarchy under the emperor Augustus. Through a series of close readings of the works of Virgil, Ovid, Seneca, and Statius, the volume scrutinizes the gender dynamics that permeate these ancient authors' language, imagery, andnarrative structures. By analysing the texts, McAuley considers to what degree their representations of maternity reflect, construct, or subvert Roman ideals of, and anxieties about, family and motherhood. Thevolume also explores the extent to which these representations distort or displace concerns about fatherhood or other relations of power in Augustan and post-Augustan Rome.

To my surprise, the blueprint I was born with had other surprises in store for me. As the years went by, one door after another opened and I learned how magically even the most devastating experiences fit into the large plan. I am grateful for having received every single blessing and challenge—they made my life absolutely awesome.

About the author Meet me, Cynthia Ann Boesen Parker. I was born October 9, 1964. I am from Glen Ellyn, Illinois, and live in Sarasota, Florida. The early years of my life have influenced my entire remainder of my life. I went through neurosurgery nine times when I was five years old . The next forty years have been spent making up for time lost to compensating for my weaknesses. Earning an Associates degree from College of DuPage was just the beginning for me. Moving to Sarasota, Florida was the best thing Ive ever done. In 1990, I met the man destined to become my husband. We married on January 19, 1991. On January 19, 2011, we celebrated our twentieth wedding anniversary. There have been many changes in our lives: lost loved ones, furthering of education, changes in residence; but life is stable for now. As a fluke, I began writing poetry. I was told that Im good at it. I enrolled in an Adult and Community Education Creative writing coursethat one course has changed my life, forever. One of the lines from one of my first poems expresses exactly how I feel, namely: I want to write, write, write till my words touch the sky This is me, Cynthia Ann Boesen Parker. Ive gone through serious illness and life tragedies to get here; to the writing that has given me a wonderful new life. Look out world, here comes Cynthia Ann Boesen Parker.

I got the idea to write this biography of my husband about 1 year after he died. I was awake in the middle of the night and the idea came to me out of the blue. I knew immediately that I wanted to tell others what a wonderful person I had the privilege to be married to for 40 years and how his illness and death affected our lives. Since he had become ill, I was with him and able to use my nursing skills from far back when i was in training at Charity Hospital School of Nursing. It was difficult but I was so glad that I could take care of him and not depend on others. I was well qualified as an RN to meet his needs and I did it with caring and love. I am a native Louisianan and have lived in a small rural town called Gramercy for all of my life. I love music and am an accomplished pianist, vocalist and songwriter., I have been active also in community theater and have had several lead roles, the best of which I think was Dolly Levi, in the title production of "Hello Dolly" I am also the choir director at my church and am the cantor and sometimes also the organist. Music holds a special place in my heart as it can express feelings that sometimes are unable to be spoken. In fact, I sang at my parents' funeral, and at Ray's funeral. It was my way to give closure to some of my grief. I plan to retire from nursing after 45 years and hope to be able to spend more time with my grandchildren, whom I love dearly, my daughter who lives with me and my two canine companions, Zoe, a 10 year old Maltipoo and Honeybunn, a 4 year old Bichon Frise. An added note about this book is that some of the proceeds will go to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Baton Rouge, La. where my mother and husband were patients and where I am now a patient.

Title: INITIATING A LEGACY OF POEMS WAS DESIGNED TO: Provide a written record of my life- transforming decisions and experiences for my descendants. It is something that I wished had been available for me to assist in my positive self-development as a young man. Record the lessons on life learned from my father and his father to be passed down to future generations. To serve as a guide and template for others who desires to reflect upon their relationships and experiences. Encourage other men in refining and expanding their sense of purpose and destiny. Serve as an example to many of my cultural and spiritual brothers of the importance of recording a written legacy. Legacy Journal of Personal Transformation is an open-ended work of poems and other literature that will be used in the context of speaking with my offspring and their progeny to fill in the dash between the date on which I was born and the date on which I physically depart this dear earth. It is my intention to continue to record my personal lifes journey, the significant events in my life and the decisions that resulted. May my vulnerability expressed in these writings assist my heirs and others in becoming more aware of the presence, plans, power and purpose of God. May they treasure the blessings of many past generations who have prayed for them and labored knowing that they would never see this day. 1. Proverbs 13:22 A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, but a sinner's wealth is stored up for the righteous.

Ronsard is considered one of France's greatest love poets, yet his poetic achievements are not restricted to his verses of love, wine and nature. A true Renaissance figure, his themes ranged from politics, science and philsophy, to the bawdy and risqué. Using Greco-Roman and Italian poetic models, and drawing on the rich images of classical mythology, Ronsard revolutionised the tradition of French poetry. In the 20th century, Ronsard's poetry was influential for W. B. Yeats, translated by Sylvia Plath, and illustrated by Henri Matisse. He stands as one of the most innovative and diverse voices in the history of European poetry.
