This paper explores literature's engagement with the medicalised body and mind, mapping out the arts' responses to medical advances from the 1900s to the present. We will study public and literary reactions to such things as germs, vaccinations, nervous disorders, cancer, and tuberculosis, looking too at current political usages of the medicalised body.
