For millennia poets have described the ailments of the body and those who treat them. Infused with hope, heartbreak, and unexpected humor, this book gathers diverse poems about our medical experiences--poems about doctors and patients, remedies and procedures, illnesses and convalescence--each one prescribing a unique perspective and new revelations. A literary elixir, Poetry in Medicine showcases not only the breadth of poetry's relationship to medicine, but also the genre's unparalleled capacity to heal us.

Contributors include Auden, Baudelaire, Berryman, Blake, Bishop, Boland, Campo, Cavafy, Clampitt, Chaucer, Clifton, Cummings, Dickinson, Donne, Conan Doyle, Eliot, Frost, Gunn, Hall, Hass, Hayden, Hirsch, Heaney, O.

Who better to write about the mysteries of the body and the mind under stress than ever-vigilant, temperature-taking, empathic poets?

    Although this was bought for someone else I dipped into it. There are a great variety of poems covering many aspects of medicine. There is even a section of medicine in war poems. The book is well bound and has good quality paper and print.
