Reading becomes a medical condition in the eighteenth century. Physiologists attribute to the nerve fibre the physical and psychological problems that befall those who read too much or read badly. But do the effects of reading depend on the constitution of the reader, on the nature of the book being read or on specific reading habits? Reading a medical treatise might be an antidote to reading a novel, but there are parallels between some medical treatises and licentious literature. This book tackles the dual question of what literature can do, medically speaking, and what medicine can do, in literary terms.
