Particularly strong in contributions showing the connections between medical controversies, figures, or topoi and popular fiction (Martineau, Collins, Conan Doyle, Ellen Wood, H. G. Wells), this volume of essays should be of interest to Victorianists and historians of medicine alike. Lawrence Rothfield, University of Chicago" This is an outstanding collection: deeply researched, clearly written essays that talk to each other on such diverse aspects of Victorian public response to medicine as Thomas Wakley s battle against fraudulent patent medicine ads, Dickens s campaigns for hospitals, periodical articles on food adulteration, sanitation and home health management, poisoning doctors in novels, the new science of sexology, drug addiction, degeneration, and a culminating essay on the importance of reading illness as metaphor in Victorian literature. Mary Wilson Carpenter, Queen s University, Canada"Reseña del editor:
This collection of essays explores the rise of scientific medicine and its impact on Victorian popular culture. Chapters include an examination of Dickens’s involvement with hospital funding, concerns over milk purity and the theatrical portrayal of drug addiction, plus a whole section devoted to medicine in crime fiction.
