Additional Details:



Across the globe and the centuries, the love between siblings often devolves into hate, adoration, rage, and jealousy. Is sibling rivalry inevitable, always destructive, and only an expression of animus and not love? What responsibilities do we have toward blood relatives or adopted siblings?  Readings include Sophocles, Edgar Allen Poe, Toni Morrison, and Robert Aldrich.
