A Look At Some Popular Fictional Mothers

ParentCircle

There is something about fictional mothers. Everyone knows that they are not real but they leave an everlasting impression on those who have read or watched them.

Mothers not only seem to know everything about us, they also comfort and love us unconditionally. The essayist Washington Irving described mothers as the ‘truest friend we have’.

In the world of literature, mothers play a central role in many powerful stories. Throughout the course of the story, the mother is one figure who is steadfast and unwavering in her dedication to her family and in her duties.

Take the case of Molly Weasley in the popular Harry Potter series for example. Not only is she a loving mother to all her children but is not afraid to risk her life to save that of her children.

In a similar manner, the character of Kunti in the Mahabharata is the ultimate symbol of devotion and sacrifice for her children.
