Schwestern am Scheideweg – Zur Schwesternbeziehung in der Literatur der Restaurationszeit
This article discusses sister relationships within the German literature from enlightenment to the mid 19th century, focusing especially the profile of sisters in the period from 1815 to 1848. The author concluded that within this period sisters were presented with a strong physical and personal contrast. The relationship between sisters is used as a personification of harmony and also as a figuration of conflict. That contrast of sisters perfectly represents the ambivalence of the era.1
