Both the actualities and the metaphorical possibilities of illness and medicine abound in literature: from the presence of tuberculosis in Franz Kafka's fiction or childbed fever in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to disease in Thomas Mann's Death in Venice or in Harold Pinter's A Kind of Alaska; from the stories of Anton Chekhov and of William Carlos Williams, both doctors, to the poetry of nurses derived from their contrasting experiences. These are just a few examples of the cross-pollination between literature and medicine.

It is no surprise, then, that courses in literature and medicine flourish in undergraduate curricula, medical schools, and continuing-education programs throughout the United States and Canada.

I teach Literature and Medicine and appreciate efforts in this eclectic branch of studies. This is a basic and fairly predictable tome weighted (slightly) toward commonplace anti-Medicine themes, finding Medicine patronizing, impersonal, male-oriented, etc. If you wish a general book and have little experience in literature or Medicine, it is a place to start. If you have experience in either, you will likely do better on your own, thinking about relevant works in poetry or fiction or even thoughtful essays. Poetry selections in this book are not the best. Look to primary sources yourself and work up a better book.
