A Question of Balance: Artists and Writers on Motherhood
Only in the past few decades a substantial number of women have been able to choose both a career in the arts / literature and motherhood. This book chronicles the struggles and celebrates the achievements of twenty-five of these women. While women still face obstacles in combining childrearing and an artistic career, Pierce Rosenberg states a dearth of material about how these women integrate the maternal and artistic aspects in their lives.rnrn“Whether confronted with the everyday frustration of being interrupted or the unimaginable sorrow of losing a child, these extraordinary women have held fast to the thread of their creative spirit, inspiring others with their determination and perseverance. And as they explore their own maternal experience, in paintings and novels, sculptures and poetry, these women are creating works of art which widen our perspective and deepen our understanding of this most complex of human relationships.”rnrnThe book portrays the following female artists / writers:rnDorothy Allison, Kate Braverman, Rosellen Brown, Sarah Charlesworth, Rita Dove, Cristina Garcia, Mary Gordon, Linda Hogan, Karen Horn, Perri Klass, Ursula K.
