Our Medicine in Literature collection captures the complexities of what it means to be human through a wide range of literary genres and film. These resources range from fiction and non-fiction (medical history, medical ethics and memoirs) to graphic novels, poetry and prose (medicine as metaphor). Representations of illness, dis-ease, healing and health are interwoven themes that give voice to a diversity of perspectives and experiences. If you're interested in exploring your subject from a different viewpoint or simply want to broaden your reading, dive right in!
