Summary
"This study revalues unmarried adult sisters in English 19th-century literature as positive figures of legal and economic autonomy representing productive labor in the domestic space. As a crucial site of contested values, this sister carries the discursive weight of sustained public debates about ideals of domesticity in 19th-century England"--
