Text/Context: Siblings
Text Context October 2010: Siblings
How good and how pleasant it is when brothers and sisters live together in harmony. — Psalms. 133: 1

“Am I my brother’s keeper?” is perhaps the best known line about siblings. This month, Text/Context investigates the deep bonds between sisters and brothers, how sharing parents can lead to friendship and love, rivalry and complications, high drama too. Our writers look to the Bible, to literary history and to personal experience.
