The Republic of Motherhood [9781784742676]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

*'The Republic of Motherhood' shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem*

`I crossed the border into the Republic of Motherhood and found it a queendom, a wild queendom.'

In this bold and resonant gathering of poems, Liz Berry turns her distinctive voice to the transformative experience of new motherhood.

Her poems sing the body electric, from the joy and anguish of becoming a mother, through its darkest hours to its brightest days.

With honesty and unabashed beauty, they bear witness to that most tender of times - when a new life arrives, and everything changes.

AUTHOR: Liz Berry is the author of Black Country, which won a Somerset Maugham Award, the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, and the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. She lives in Birmingham, with her partner and their two sons.
