More About This Title The Female Body in Medicine and Literature


This collection explores the complex intersections between literature and the medical treatment of women between 1600 and 2000. With contributors employing a variety of methodologies, and considering a broad range of texts from Henry More’s Pre-Existency of the Soul (1659) to the 2004 film Vera Drake, the book furthers our understanding of the development of women’s medicine and comments on its wider cultural ramifications.
