The adventures of Peregrine Pickle : in which are included memoirs of a lady of quality by T Smollett( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The genius of "Peregrine Pickle" and its young author is to be found neither exclusively in the interpolated tales that its contemporary audience read avidly nor in the 'main story' that appealed to its later readers but rather in the entire canvas upon which is painted a densely populated and vividly realized fictional world. Taken in its entirety, Smollett's novel still holds the power to delight and instruct a modern audience by virtue of its author's capacious vision, his force of spirit, and his ability to capture life in words and images."--from the editors' introduction

The authors of this book present a medical case history of the poet Alexander Pope (who suffered from many diseases throughout his life besides his well known dwarfism and hunchback). Drawing heavily upon the Correspondence for information about Pope's symptoms, they discuss his various ailments and the effect ill health had on his writing. In addition, the authors discuss the influence of his interest in astronomy science on Pope's poetic imagination as well as his interest in microscopy, geology and the building of a grotto, and physics

The Ferment of knowledge : studies in the historiography of eighteenth-century science by G. S Rousseau( Book )

25 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late summer of 1941, as the war in Europe drags on, long-buried secrets begin to surface in the Hampshire village of Winstead, when the body of a young woman--a former conscientious objector - is found shot to death in the church cemetery. The woman's only connection to Winstead seems to be that she lately had joined a group of conscripted workers who are building a prisoner of war camp on an abandoned farm near the village. But Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Lamb, who is called in to solve the case, has his doubts. The mystery deepens when workers at the farm find the remains of a child in the foundation of the old farmhouse, and a tramp who had been squatting in the wood near the church turns up dead. Lamb soon begins to suspect that the crimes might be related to a tragic event that occurred in Winstead more than twenty years earlier--the suicide of a village woman who took her life in despair after her husband abandoned her and took their young twin sons with him. As Lamb pieces together the connections between the crimes, he draws closer to the source of evil in Winstead's past and present and, in the end, must risk his own life to uncover

Nervous acts : essays on literature, culture, and sensibility by G. S Rousseau( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1965 and 2000 George Rousseau wrote a series of landmark essays about the role of the nervous system in the rise of literature and sensibility that altered the landscape of eighteenth-century studies. Now these essays have been collected for the first time. The arguments challenge thinking about the Enlightenment and reconfigure the contexts of European sensibility. Since their original publication much criticism and scholarship has been produced that engages, adopts, and expands on Rousseau's discussions. The new introductory essay surveys this fascinating cultural profile from the ancients to the moderns, and provides a personal account of what the author's quest for the past has entailed

The sciences of homosexuality in early modern Europe by Kenneth Borris( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Sciences of Homosexuality in Early Modern Europe investigates early modern scientific accounts of same-sex desires and the shapes they assumed in everyday life. It explores the significance of those representations and interpretations from around 1450 to 1750, long before the term homosexuality was coined and accrued its current range of cultural meanings." "This book illuminates many of the questions that are current today about the nature of homosexual activity and reveals how the early modern period and its scientific interpretations of same-sex relationships are fundamental to understanding the conceptual development of contemporary sexuality."--Jacket

Framing and imagining disease in cultural history( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sooner or later most of us enter the kingdom of illness. Yet few understand how we translate ourselves into patients and what stories we tell ourselves about our body's maladies. Even if we knew, we harbour little sense of how we compare to the patients of the past, our doctors with theirs. In this book fourteen eminent cultural historians explore this hinterland between health and sickness, reality and fiction. Building on the work of Susan Sontag, Michel Foucault, Sander Gilman, and Roy Porter, they roam over five centuries and many countries to understand how doctors and patients constructed themselves. Included are such canonical figures as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas Mann, great English novelists, as well as dozens of minor figures - including patients and doctors - whose experiences and contributions to the debate have not yet been explored. Figures bordering on madness are probed, the hypnotized and drugged scrutinized, often in relation to their fantasy life, dreams and mesmeric states. And epidemics like cholera and tuberculosis are treated as living - almost breathing - cultural organisms. The authors conclude that the human understanding of illness always requires framing. That is, setting it within boundaries and borders: in the context of society's pressures, politic's demands, around the perimeter of language, narrative, and literary form
