Maternal Measures : Figuring Caregiving in the Early Modern Period (Hardcover) (Naomi Yavneh)
about this item
This title was first published in 2001. Focusing attention on the neglected area of relations between brothers and sisters during the early modern period, this volume explores the sibling dynamics that shaped family relations in Italy, England, France, Spain, and Germany. Using an array of feminist and cultural studies approaches, prominent scholars consider sibling ties from a range of interdisciplinary perspectives - including art history, musicology, literary studies, and social history - to articulate underlying paradigms according to which sibling relations were constructed.
