Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761817182, Paperback)

Alba Amoia traces the demythologization of maternity in Italy, from its presence in the fertility goddesses at the dawn of Italic society to its changing interpretations in today's culture. Women writers, she argues, have been especially responsible for this paradigm shift that is evidenced by the declining birth rate in Italy. The book explores the evolution of this feminine consciousness in relation to religion, sexuality, sociology and literature.
