Description
Consider two polar images of the same medical condition: the pale and fragile Camille ensconced on a chaise in a Victorian parlour, daintily coughing a small spot of blood onto her white lace pillow, and a wretched poor man in a Bowery flophouse spreading a dread and deadly infection. Now Katherine Ott chronicles how in one century a romantic, ambiguous affliction of the spirit was transformed into a disease that threatened public health and civic order. She argues that there was no constant identity to the disease over time, no core tuberculosis.
