Overview:The Patient - Apercus Series - This collection of ten essays addresses the suffering of patients and how we as individuals and the larger society understand that suffering and try to ameliorate it. Four essays are personal reflections on illness, including original poetry and creative prose, interspersed with analysis of literary texts. These pieces reveal how suffering is often intensely private, how it happens interstitially, between medical appointments, procedures, and treatments. The essays expose how, for many people the psychological fragmentation that typically accompanies serious disease is ultimately more threatening to one's overall well-being than the disease itself. The remaining six authors take a wider view of patienthood, examining it through the lens of history, politics, or culture. Collectively, these essays attest to the rich intellectual and personal gains that result from an exploration of the condition of patienthood and what it means to become a "patient."
