Using original research in scientific treatises, philosophical manuscripts, and political documents, this pioneering study describes the neglected era of revolutionary medicine in Europe through the writings of the English poet and physician, John Keats. De Almeida explores the four primaryconcerns of Romantic medicine--the physician's task, the meaning of life, the prescription of disease and health, and the evolution of matter and mind--and reveals their expression in Keats's poetry and thought. By delineating a distinct but unknown era in the history of medicine, charting thepoet's milieu within this age, and providing close reading of his poems in these contexts, Romantic Medicine and John Keats illustrates the interdisciplinary bonds between the two healing arts of the Romantic period: medicine and poetry.

Editorial Reviews

"A fantastic assemblage of new and important information. It is interesting in its own right, but also--and more to the point--is continuously relevant to our understanding of Keats and his contemporaries, the Romantic period more generally, and the history of medicine and science inEngland."--Jack Stillinger, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
