Happy Mother’s Day to all our Counter-Currents readers, supporters, their mothers, and those readers and supporters who are mothers.
In his essay, “Sylvia Plath: Stasis in Darkness,” literary critic Vic Olvir remembers how, In her diary, poet Sylvia Plath commented on the unique importance of motherhood in a woman’s life:
It is not when I have a baby, but that I have one, and more, which is of supreme importance to me. I have always been extremely fond of the definition of Death which says it is: Inaccessibility to Experience, a Jamesian view, but so good. And for a woman to be deprived of the Great Experience her body is formed to partake of, to nourish, is a great and wasting Death. After all, a man need physically do no more than have the usual intercourse to become a father. A woman has 9 months of becoming something other than herself, of separating from this otherness, of feeding it and being a source of milk and honey to it. To be deprived of this is a death indeed. And to consummate love by bearing the child of the loved one is far profounder than any orgasm or intellectual rapport.
