9781910745144: Letters to My Mother and other mothers

They forego promotion and pay packets.
They stay at home. They are night watchers
Who feed and rock and calm to sleep
They tie their precious gifts to their back
Or stagger in tired pride, pushing our future
They are the bravest soldiers – marching on. 
– Mothers All

How does our relationship with our mothers shape the people we become? Does the experience of motherhood change us?

Bashabi Fraser commemorates her mother and the conversations they would have together. Exploring themes of motherhood, empowerment, love and loss, the acclaimed poet draws on her Indian and British life experience, engaging with hard-hitting current issues such as climate change, war and the prevalence of violence against women worldwide.

A son questions his mother’s love after she has learned about his violent deeds. The biblical Eve is shown as a liberator. A daughter of India demands justice from her society. Fraser’s poetry is powerful and passionate as she contemplates the experience of motherhood and celebrates the life of her own mother and that of other mothers.

Review:

There is a wonderful conversational ease in the writing, with mother and child sharing their feelings about music, art, love and politics, but the poems are always delicately and lyrically crafted. STEPHEN REGAN, Professor of Poetry at the University of Durham
