Editorial Reviews


"Maternal Impressions is a powerful piece of writing that resonates with a number of crucial questions in contemporary culture, and treats an old topic in a refreshing and provocative way. Cristina Mazzoni writes with honesty and clarity."—Lynne Huffer, Rice University

"Maternal Impressions is an original and provocative book that theorizes and crosses the divide between feminist knowledge and feminist knowers. Cristina Mazzoni's unique interpretation of maternal experiences and female subjectivity in texts of science, popular culture, literature, feminist theory, fairytales, and psychoanalysis challenges most of our presuppositions about how to navigate diverse intellectual terrains with consciousness of ourselves at the origins of knowledge. Carefully researched and beautifully written, this book creates new and important conversations between U.S. and European specialists and non-specialists interested in theorizing maternal subjectivity as an integral part of human culture."—Stephanie Jed, University of California, San Diego

"Maternal Impressions is a beautifully researched and elegantly written interdisciplinary book that explores the contradictory perceptions, representations, and appropriations of motherhood and childbirth in modern culture. It will become a milestone of feminist criticism."—Lucia Re, University of California, Los Angeles
