"A mother is, next to God, all powerful," The Public Ledger asserted in 1850. Looking at complex representations of maternity in sentimental fiction, in texts treating the problem of slavery, and in selected canonical literature, Stephanie A. Smith traces the career of an ideology of sanctified maternity in antebellum American culture.
