Beskrivelse

This study examines representations of tuberculosis in Victorian fiction, analyzing consumptive characters for insights into how society viewed this 'dread disease' and its sufferers, and revealing the myths which surrounded this socially significant illness. It displays, also, how popular assumptions were used as diagnostic tools by a frustrated medical profession.
