    Om Orwell's Cough

    The doctor suddenly appeared beside Will, startling him. Though he smiled reassuringly, the poet noticed that he kept a safe distance. In a soothing, urbane voice, he explained the treatment: stewed prunes to evacuate the bowels; succulent meats to ease digestion; cinnabar and the sweating tub Desperate diseases called for desperate remedies. Did Will Shakespeares doctors addle his brain with cinnabar and mercury? Was Jane Eyre inspired by the plagued school that claimed the Bront clan? Did writing 1984 kill George Orwell? Dr John Ross of Harvard Medical School opens his surgery to consult with the likes of Milton, Swift, Melville, Joyce, and Jack London, exploring the history of medicine as never before, from the Bards cloaked visits to Southwark to cure his unsavoury rashes to the arsenic-and-horse-serum jabs given for Yeatss fevers. With novelistic flair and deep expertise, Ross reveals a wholly absorbing new view on the writers life.
