If medicine is viewed as the understanding and alleviation of human suffering, then it becomes more than a mere empirical,
scientific pursuit, and literature offers a rich legacy of insight into human pain and healing. Since the time of the
ancient Greeks and the Book of Job, illness and dying have been key themes in prose and poems. Many great writers –
including Rabelais, Chekhov, and William Carlos Williams – were physicians themselves, while others – Sophocles, Moliere,
Hawthorne, Dickenson, Kafka, and Fitzgerald – chose illness as a great theme. Professor Arnold L. Weinstein uses literature
to explore this bond between medicine and the human spirit, including how our perceptions of disease and the role of
medicine have been influenced over the ages.
