Mothers’ Day blogging

Yes, I know my British readers will be thinking, ‘Hang on, wasn’t that in March?’, but this one’s in America, which is a foreign country and they do things differently there. (Hopefully the sellers of nausea-inducing tacky cards and cheap chocolates won’t cotton on; two of them in a year would be serious overload.) Anyway, their Mothers’ Day has generated some good early modern-related blog posts. David Mazella on mothers in Jane Austen’s novels, while Hieronimo at Blogging the Renaissance plays with EEBO and finds… Mother Cunny.

… Oh, and Brandon has posted the Mother’s Day Proclamation, containing the hilarious line “Arise, all women who have breasts”.
