The Healing Arts

£7.99

Product description

This anthology celebrates the many different ways in which medicine and the arts interact. The stories, poems, drama, paintings, and cartoons have been selected both to entertain and to enrich the perceptions of doctors, nurses, and anyone else interested in the arts. The aim is to give pleasure, but at the same time to stretch the imagination and deepen the sympathies of all those who care for patients. Since we are all likely to be patients at some time, it will help us to be more understanding both of ourselves and of those who care for us when we are ill. The work of creative artists can help us attain this kind of understanding.

It has been said that the humanities are the hormones' - they energize our thoughts and feelings. The pieces in this fascinating anthology have been selected to illustrate that this process provides enduring interest and pleasure.

The hardback itself is in very good condition, however it has been classified as fair due to small tears to the dust cover.
