"That Pale Mother Rising" concerns the persistence of essentialized motherhood in the midst of the postmodern, linking nineteenth-century sentimentalism to the American founders' understanding of the democratic social body. Using slave narratives and texts of canonical male writers not conventionally aligned with sentimentalism, Cherniavsky explores how essential motherhood paradoxically resolves into oppositional imitation.
