Setara Pracha on why we should read Toni Morrison on Motherhood

There are many woman that I could write about here; Sally Vickers; Katherine Mansfield; Arundhati Roy. However, Toni Morrison writes of motherhood in a way that manages to depict the realities and the emotional aspects without ever being mawkish or maudlin.

Her prose-poetic style even elevates infanticide to the realism of noble self effacement and sacrifice. The politics of her work ensure that the everyday is tied into the cosmic and she depicts womanhood in all its glory and goryness. Read, learn and enjoy.
