About this title


The mother/son relationship is defined by powerful cultural myths. On the one hand it is idealized: the bond between mother and son is exalted as the purest and most fulfilling in a woman's life and an unquestioning source of love in a man's life. On the other hand it is vilified. Mother love is portrayed as stifling, limiting or even castrating. Mothers are blamed for flaws in their son's personalities and for any sexual orientation which is not strictly heterosexual. This study attempts to reveal the truth behind these myths and lifts the lid on decades of uneasy family relationships.
