Fragment toward an essay on the mother, time and poetry
A 5 page essay on the mother's expectations, legacy, and results of the daughter's efforts in Maxine Hong Kingston's autobiography. The writer posits that both the mother and daughter, though retaining separate ideologies, come together in the fact that the daughter becomes a warrior woman, a warrior created through the help of the mother. No additional sources cited.
As Ursula K. Le Guin says, "We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains." That's just what we wanted: new maps. Putting together this issue was a fairy-tale experience—in the best way. (No babies, witches, elves, or unicorns were harmed in the making of this magazine.) Contributing editor Rick Moody played the role of Special Advisory Editor, lending not only his knowledge and enthusiasm, but an essay on the mother of modern fabulists, Angela Carter, with whom he studied at Brown. Our wishes for stories and poems by the best women working in the realm of the fantastic were granted by Rikki Ducornet, Kelly Link, Stacey Richter, Miranda July, and many others. So slip into a pocket universe, drive through a family's home, witness a juggler's balls turning into women, and of course, squirm as a little girl gets lost in the woods.
