Help Request!

I have a request for those who are better historians than I: one of my students is trying to learn about sibling relationships in early modern England, and in early modern English drama. The student has read and followed up on the family history books I've recommended, but I'm drawing a blank on anything specifically related to siblings (especially brother and sister).

Please post or email any ideas! And thank you :)


  1. I'm betting there's some stuff in Sidney biographies, given his relationship with his sister.

    Have you looked at Miller and Yavneh's Sibling Relations and Gender in the Early Modern World (Ashgate, 2006)?
