The Two Faces of Age and the Resolution of Generational Conflict.
Donow, Herbert S.
Gerontologist, v34 n1 p73-78 Feb 1994
Notes that aged are often regarded as exploiters of youth, selfishly clinging to disproportionate share of wealth, power, and resources; yet are paradoxically viewed as helpless victims as they fall into physical decline. Sees these two faces of age appearing in works by Shakespeare, Balzac, and Dickens. Presents examples of these characterizations. (Author/NB)
