The Significance of Sibling Relationships in Literature
Edited by JoAnna Stephens Mink and Janet Doubler Ward

Popular Press

This interdisciplinary collection of essays encompasses variations of the sibling paradigm—the single child, brothers and sisters, twins, and sisters and sisterhood. Literary siblings are the focus, but each discussion is placed within the parameters of cultural and social commentary.

The essays bring together studies in the fields of social and family therapy, psychological research, and literary criticism.
