Calling upon the ancient Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone, Mother Love examines the love between mother and daughter, two tumblers locked in an eternal somersault: each mother a daughter, each daughter a potential mother.

In settings as various as a patio in Arizona, the bistros and boulevards of Paris, the sun-drenched pyramids of Mexico―and directly from the Greek myth itself―Rita Dove explores this relationship and the dilemma of letting go.

About the Author:

Rita Dove is the recipient of many honors, including the Pulitzer Prize and the Fulbright Lifetime Achievement Medal. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, she is a Commonwealth Professor of English at the University of Virginia and lives in Charlottesville.

Review:

“This volume shows Dove―Pulitzer Prize winner, novelist, and 1993-95 U.S. Poet Laureate―at the height of her poetic powers.”
- Publishers Weekly

Mother Love is an unsparing book. . . . Rita Dove's laser glance exposes and cauterizes its subjects in new and disturbing ways.”
- Helen Vendler, The New Yorker
