KEEP­ING IT IN THE FAMILY

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - STAGE -

THE Bron­tës aren’t the only family mem­bers to have ex­pe­ri­enced a lit­er­ary ri­valry.

The Broth­ers Grimm – Ger­man sib­lings Jacob and Wil­helm Grimm. They made their name with their pi­o­neer­ing col­lec­tions of folk tales, which they fol­lowed up with fairy­tales of their own.

Kings­ley Amis and Martin Amis – arguably lit­er­a­ture’s most fa­mous fa­ther-and-son team. Amis jnr moved out of the lengthy shadow cast by his fa­ther, who is be­stremem­bered for his aca­demic farce to be­come one of the pre-em­i­nent fig­ures in Bri­tish writ­ing in the late 20th cen­tury.
