Editorial Reviews


Bringing together scholars from an admirably wide range of disciplines, historical periods, and approaches, this collection repeatedly illuminates the ways that medieval and early modern writers translated bodily experiences into language. By focusing on the inter-related rhetorics of health and illness, the authors underscore how language is the necessary medium through which the pleasures, pains, and anxieties of the body are grudgingly revealed. --Michael Schoenfeldt, University of Michigan
