Kent State University Press, 2006 - Literary Criticism - 208 pages
A gathering of coregiver's voices. So much has been written about literature and medicine from the perspective of physicians. But in the last few years, nurses are finding their voices and began making important contributions to the field of biomedical humanities. These men and women medical professionals see different things and experience patients and health care issues in different contexts. Judy Schaefer has compiled this anthology of contemporary nurse-poets' work, which is accompanied by their commentaries about - their poetry, their work, and their lives. She has gathered contributions from some of the best-known nurse-poets as well as from those who deserve to be. The Poetry of Nursing will add significantly to the ever-growing body of literature that connects medicine and the humanities.
