Devoted Sisters: Representations of the Sister Relationship in Nineteenth-century British and American Literature

Ashgate, 2003 - 177 sivua
This work seeks to explore and explain the power of the sister bond in 19th-century literature. Paired or grouped, allies or rivals, similar or (more usually) sharply contrasted, sisters offered an irresistible structuring framework to both novelists and readers. Texts which focus on contrasting sister heroines can be perceived as sites of urgent struggle, demanding that difficult choices be made by narrator, reader, hero and sister heroines.
