About this item

Inspired by a September 2014 conference in Bristol, scholars of French literature and culture explore medicine and disease in 19th-century France. The sections cover documenting medical affliction; writing pathological experience; and reading body, mind, and environment. Six of the 11 essays are in English, and consider such aspects as twice shy: two accounts of timidity in fin-de-siècle France, emancipation as a subversive strategy in Renée Mauperin and an early case of "hysterical anorexia," and genius and degeneracy: Auguste Rodin and the Monument to Balzac.
