Reviews

This volume shows Dove--Pulitzer Prize winner, novelist, and 1993-95 U.S. Poet Laureate--at the height of her poetic powers.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Mother Love is an unsparing book. . . . Rita Dove's laser glance exposes and cauterizes its subjects in new and disturbing ways.--Helen Vendler "The New Yorker"
