Looking for literature with Themes of Motherhood in times of war
Hey everyone. I was wondering if you guys can suggest some short stories, poems, or fictional novels that are about motherhood in times of national wars. I prefer contemporary American literature. This request is for my thesis. Motherhood and war is only one of the themes that I am proposing to pursue. I got my idea from the poem "The Mother/Child Papers" by Alicia Ostriker and Judith Merril's short story "That Only a Mother" and her early fiction Shadow on the Hearth.
