Memorable Mums in Literature

Mother’s Day is coming up and here at OUP we’ve got a question: who is the most memorable Mother in literature?
Is it a woman like Marilla Cuthbert who came into motherhood late when she adopted a strange little redhead, or one like Mrs Bennet whose poor nerves only desire is to see ‘one of [her] daughters happily settled at Netherfield and all the others equally well married’?

Vote below and make your suggestions for most memorable Mother in the comments!
