Pub. Date:
No other human experience evokes such a range of emotions as the birth of a child. In this unique and unforgettable anthology, some of the best-loved poets of the modern world capture the complexity of our feelings -- the hopes and fears, amazement and ambivalence both men and women experience at the prospect of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. Lyrical and poignant, this entertaining and everlasting collection is a celebration of the miracle of life -- and an examination of our responses to its infinite mystery. Book jacket.
