Fictions of Disease in Early Modern England:
Bodies, Plagues and Politics
PDF | 291 pages | 2.15 MBHow did early modern people imagine their bodies? What impact did the new disease syphilis and recurrent outbreaks of plague have on these mental landscapes? Why was the glutted belly such a potent symbol of pathology? Ranging from the Reformation through the English Civil War, Fictions of Disease is a unique study of a fascinating cultural imaginary of "disease" and its political consequences. Healy's original approach illuminates the period's disease-impregnated literature, including works by Shakespeare, Heywood, Milton, Dekker, and others.
