  • Disability and Dissent in Ann Petry’s The Street
    • Abstract: In Ann Petry’s novel The Street (1946), Min, a middle-aged Black woman living in Harlem during World War II, visits a root doctor whose services have come highly recommended by her neighbor, Mrs. Hedges.1 Min is desperate for help with her relationship troubles; her live-in boyfriend, the apartment superintendent Jones, has grown increasingly abusive since he’s become fixated on the novel’s protagonist, Lutie Johnson, who has recently moved into their building. Min does not have the financial security to find her own place; she has learned from experience that it is best to share costs with a companion, because “if one got sick the other one could carry on and there’d still be food and the rent would be paid.”2 For ...

  • Mary Todd Lincoln, Elizabeth Keckley, and America’s Psychiatric
           Republic
    • Abstract: At one in the afternoon on May 19, 1875, there was a knock at the door of Mary Todd Lincoln’s room in the Grand Pacific Hotel in Chicago, Illinois. Attorney Leonard Swett had arrived with bad news. At the behest of her son Robert, Swett served Mary Lincoln with a summons to appear in court. The charge: insanity. Robert hoped to remove his mother to an insane asylum and he had the supporting testimony of six distinguished Illinois physicians at his disposal. Among them were Doctors Hosmer Allen Johnson and Charles Gilman Smith, both of whom had unsuccessfully treated Mary Lincoln’s other son, Tad, during his fatal illness of 1871. The trial commenced at two o’clock, just one hour after Swett appeared at Mrs. ... Read More

  • Utopian Literature and Bioethics: Exploring Reproductive Difference and
           Gender Equality
    • Abstract: Utopian literature offers an opportunity to work through the potential benefits and social anxieties associated with alternative social and technological futures. This essay will explore how feminist and other utopian narratives can inform bioethical debates regarding the fundamental differences between female and male experiences of human reproduction, focusing on the use of biological and technological methods to redress inequalities arising from biological difference. Inherently speculative, utopian fiction serves as a useful tool for interrogating social and political attitudes toward procreation and childrearing, adopting a similar degree of abstraction as a philosophical thought experiment. This fiction ... Read More

  • The Carnivalesque in Illness: Hollis Seamon’s Somebody Up There
           Hates You
    • Abstract: “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine”In Rabelais and His World (1968), first published in Russian in 1965, philosopher and literary theorist Mikhail Bakhtin examines popular humor and folk culture in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. He emphasizes the importance of the “lower” strata of culture as opposed to the official “high culture,” thereby drawing an implicit parallel between the period before the Renaissance in Russia and the years prior to the Second World War. Bakhtin associates the sixteenth-century French writer François Rabelais with the “tradition of folk humor” and more specifically “the culture of folk carnival.”1 Then he moves on to define carnival as “the people’s second life organized on ...

  • Of Drugs and Droogs: Cultural Dynamics, Psychopharmacology, and
           Neuroscience in Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange
    • Abstract: In Britain around 1960 respectable people began to murmur about the growth of juvenile delinquency and read in certain sensational articles in certain newspapers that the young criminals . . . were somehow an inhuman breed and required inhuman treatment. There were irresponsible people who spoke of aversion therapy . . . if the young delinquents could be with the aid of electric shocks, drugs, or purely Pavlovian conditioning, rendered incapable of performing antisocial acts, then our streets would once more be safe at night.Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange is one of the most memorable and well-known British texts about youth counterculture. The novel, however, is rarely read in terms of its relevance to and ... Read More

  • Traces of Stigma in John Banville’s The Sea
    • Abstract: John Banville is considered by many to be a master of his craft and an adroit literary craftsman, his fiction more poetry than prose.1 Banville himself explains that “it all starts with rhythm. . . . For me, a line has to sing before it does anything else.”2 Literary musicality is in every nook and cranny of Banville’s 2005 novel, The Sea, which takes the reader into an imagined yet realistic world framed within a powerful and coherent narrative. And that is what art means to Banville, whose aim is to push us into a new world and “not just read about it, but actually experience it: to have the dream; to write the novel.”3 A novel, says the author, comes alive when its reader interacts with it in his or her ...

  • “There Is No Miracle More Cruel Than This”: Readian Relaxation and
           Maternal Agency in Plath’s Three Women
    • Abstract: No young woman who learns carefully what I have written and who practices deep respiration and relaxation . . . should have any trouble during pregnancy, and when she comes to labor she must leave the birth of her child to the uterus, patiently alienating herself from its efforts during the first stage to open the birth canal and then assisting to expel the baby when it calls upon her to give gentle expulsive efforts.On an August day in 1962 the opening line of Sylvia Plath’s Three Women was broadcast over the radio waves of the BBC’s Third Programme: “I am slow as the world. I am very patient” (176, l. 1). Alternately referred to as a verse drama and a polyvocal poem, Three Women traces the thoughts of three ... Read More

  • An Economy of Illness: The Poetics of Women in Pain
    • Abstract: In her 1999 collection The Reef, American poet and scholar Elizabeth Arnold describes the medicalization of her experiences with Hodgkin’s disease, a form of lymphoma that targets the lymph nodes. Within her book-length sequence of poems, doctors and nurses drift in and out of the hospital and waiting rooms as the poet describes moments of sitting “(cold) in / the waiting room in shorts,” coughing up “tainted, yellow jelly cells,” and “lying on a metal bed in sheets” over and over again as the cancer is treated, recurs, and is treated again.1 This circularity causes readers to lose track of the timeline of her illness, and this out-of-time feeling forms a defining thematic component of her collection: the uncertain ...

  • Showing that Medical Ethics Cases Can Miss the Point: Rewriting Short
           Stories as Cases
    • Abstract: Writing in the British Medical Journal in 1999, Anne Hudson Jones observes that literature has been “important to medical ethics in at least three major ways.”1 Patients, their loved ones, and health care professionals have published “narratives of witness”—powerful experiential accounts prompting the reconsideration of “accepted medical practices and ethical precepts.”2 Other works—especially novels—have been offered as moral guides to living well, both within the clinic and beyond it. But the most prominent role of literature in medical ethics, Jones notes, has been the use of short stories as “case examples” in the teaching of principle-based ethics.3 Stories by writers like William Carlos Williams and Richard ...

  • Printing Parasites: Hookworm and Public Health Narratives in Southern
           Fiction
    • Abstract: “What is the most dangerous animal in the world'”1 In the first half of the twentieth century the expected answer to that question did not involve a ferocious bear, man-eating lion, or poisonous copperhead; instead, the most pressing threat to the United States was a microscopic parasite leeching off the intestines of citizens: the hookworm. The hookworm became our most dangerous enemy through expansive public health campaigns that disseminated information about symptoms, treatment, and prophylaxis in order to eradicate the “Germ of Laziness.” By “instruct[ing] the teachers, enlist[ing] the press, and, by lectures, demonstrations, and personal conference,” public health interventions were meant to “teach the people ...

  • Not Playing Around: Games in Graphic Illness Narratives
    • Abstract: Why do recent graphic narratives about illness use merry-go-rounds, board games, and games of pretend and performance as metaphors to explain the experience of being ill' Intuitively one might expect images of play and game to connect with nostalgia, with pleasure, with a sense of freedom, none of which come to mind as viable images to discuss a struggle with such difficult physical illnesses as cancer or mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. But acclaimed graphic novelists including Miriam Engelberg, Daryl Cunningham, Brick, Ellen Forney, Marisa Acocella Marchetto, and Brian Fies mine the rich narrative ambiguities of game situations to communicate the gap that intervenes between a sense of ...
