            Filling a gap in what we know about medical writing in England in the 100+ years after the advent of the Great Mortality , this book calls attention to a discourse that privileges illness narratives, strategies of self-care, and the voices of poets, patients, and practitioners. W...orking from the assumption that there is a discernible link between catastrophic disease events and an upsurge in writing about death and the health of the body, this book recognizes the formation of a discourse written for a non-academic audience that provides information on how to interpret symptoms of disease, how to devise effective treatments, and how to implement regimens of health believed to be preventative. When read in conjunction with medical treatises, plague tractates, and verse remedies, literary narratives disclose an experience of illness that other genres of medical writing lack, thus enabling us to see the kinship between poetry and the healing arts. Deploying an interpretive method from 21st-century medical humanities programs, as Rita Charon's practice of narrative medicine has, we learn how to diagnose a text as if we were diagnosing a body both by observing its symptoms and by listening closely to the stories of patients. This study brings the storytelling practices of poets, patients, and physicians in the midst of a medieval public health crisis to the attention of a 21st-century audience. In doing so, it asks these key questions: How can we recuperate the voices of those afflicted by illness in medieval texts when we have no direct testimony? How do we interpret stories told by patients in narratives mediated by others? Where do women factor into the shaping of a medical canon? How does medical writing intersect with religious belief and memorial practices governed by the Church? How do regimens of health benefit a population in the throes of an epidemic?

            This book examines illustrations created to accompany fictions written by several of the most popular authors published in Britain and America between 1885 and 1920. By studying the lavish illustrations that complemented not only initial serializations, but also subsequent public...ations of fictions by H. Rider Haggard, Rudyard Kipling, James De Mille, Robert Louis Stevenson, and H.G. Wells, the book demonstrates the significance of images to the fin de siecle romance form. In order to make fantastic plots seem possible, graphic artists worked hand in hand with authors to not only fill gaps in audience understanding, but also expand and deepen the meaning of these marvels. The book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, visual culture, illustration studies, British and American history, and British and American literature.

            Entwined Being: Twins in Literary, Digital and Visual Culture (Hardback)

            The tale of twins being reunited after a long separation is a trope that has been endlessly repeated and reworked across different cultures and throughout history, with each moment adapting the twin plot to address its current cultural tensions. In this study, Edward King demonst...rates how twins are a means of exploring the social implications of hyper-connectivity and the compromising relationship between humans and digital information, their environment and their genetics. As King demonstrates, twins tell us about the changing forms of connectivity and power in contemporary culture and what new conceptions of the human they present us with. Taking account of a broad range of literary, cultural and scientific practices, Entwined Being probes discussions surrounding twins such as: - The way in which they appear in behavioral genetics as a way of identifying inherited predispositions to social media - How their faces interrupt biometric interfaces such as facial recognition software and undermine advances in neo-liberal surveillance systems - How they represent the uncanny and the weird in the horror genre and how this questions ideologies of communications media and the connectivity it enables - Their association with telepathy and cybernetics in science fiction - Their construction as models for entangled being in ecological thought Drawing upon the literary and filmic works of Ken Follet, Edgar Allan Poe, H. P. Lovecraft, Bruce Chatwin, Shelley Jackson, Brian de Palma, Peter Greenway and David Cronenberg, as well as science fiction literature and the television series Orphan Black, King illuminates how twins are employed across a range of disciplines to envision a critical re-conception of the human in times of digital integration and ecological crisis.

            In her four novels and many essays, Marilynne Robinson develops a distinctive Christian vision animated by a powerfully affirmative and sacramental attitude toward the physical world and everyday human life. An in-depth philosophical exploration of her work - from Gilead to her e...xtensive non-fiction writing - Marilynne Robinson's Worldly Gospel reads the author's theology as articulating a compelling response to the claim that Christianity is an otherworldly religion whose adherents seek through it to escape the misfortunes of this life. Ryan Kemp and Jordan Rodgers argue that Robinson's work challenges the modern atheistic tradition dating back to Friedrich Nietzsche to present a unique form of contemporary faith that seeks to affirm the world rather than deny its claims.
