Jones, David H. Two Brothers: One North, One South. Encino : Staghorn, 2008.

The title characters are William and Clifton Prentiss, both suffering with wounds in the same war hospital, but not talking to each other on account of the difference of opinion noted in the subtitle. The Good Grey Poet serves as their go-between, and their fratricidal tendencies become metonymic for the entire War.
