Examining the ways in which hypochondria forms both a malady and a metaphor for a range of British Romantic writers, Grinnell contends that this is not one illness amongst many, but a disorder of the very ability to distinguish between illness and health, a malady of interpretation that mediates a broad spectrum of pressing cultural questions.
GEORGE C. GRINNELL is Assistant Professor in the Department of Critical Studies at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan, Canada, where he teaches Critical Theory and Romanticism. He has published articles and book chapters on Romantic-era medicalized discourse as well as biometrics and questions of terror in the period.
