The 10 worst mothers in fiction

Last year came up with a list of the ten worst mothers in fiction.

One mother on the list:
Margaret White from Carrie by Stephen King

Mother of Carrie White, Margaret was religious fanatic who believed nearly everything was sin and became physically and emotionally abusive to her daughter in an effort to get her to conform to her devout lifestyle, usually by locking her in a closet until she prayed for forgiveness. That kind of mother would send anyone into a telekinetic fury.
Read about another mother on the list.

Also see Kate Saunders' critic's chart of mothers and daughters in literature.
