Constantine Cavafy’s preoccupation with the fragility of the human condition, and his attention to illness, disease and death, old age, alcohol consumption and homosexuality continue to attract and challenge his readers. In turning anew to these themes, this book draws on the medical humanities to provide a new and integrated framework. The medical humanities provide us with a new framework through which Cavafy’s poetry can be investigated, not only by scholars in literary studies and world literature, but also by medical practitioners and researchers in the history of medicine.
