Do you mean one work that covers the whole spectrum? Or works that deal well with one facet of it?<br><br>
I can't think of too many that cover the whole spectrum, but here's one: <a href="http://www.palace.net/~llama/poetry/refusal" target="_blank">Dylan Thomas' "The Refusal to Mourn the Death, by Fire, of a Child in London</a>.

If you don't mind freaky disturbing poems, Sylvia Plath's <a href="http://plagiarist.com/poetry/1418/" target="_blank">Nick and the Candlestick</a> is great for birth, motherhood, and intimations of mortality.<br><br>
For books -- Martin Amis' "Time's Arrow" details a life in reverse, beginning with the old man's corpse springing to life, then living backward until he shrinks, climbs into his mother's womb, and disappears.
