Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life by Daphne de Marneffe
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 4.1 MB
Overview: Esteemed psychoanalyst Daphne de Marneffe examines women’s desire to care for children in an updated reissue of her "fascinating analysis that’s a welcome addition to the dialogues about motherhood" (Publishers Weekly).
If a century ago it was women’s sexual desires that were unspeakable, today it is the female desire to mother that has become taboo. One hundred years of Freud and feminism have liberated women to acknowledge and explore their sexual selves, as well as their public and personal ambitions. What has remained inhibited is women’s thinking about motherhood.
