"A sensitive, intelligent book."
—Sander L. Gilman, Professor of Humane Studies, Cornell University
How is AIDS treated in the contemporary plays of Larry Kramer and William Hoffman? How important is the Black Death to a reader of Boccaccio's Decameron? How have the historical and current outbreaks of contagious disease affected the creation of literature, and how has this literature in turn shaped our response to disease? Original and moving, To Blight with Plague addresses these and other central questions raised by literary works whose main themes revolve around contagious, epidemic disease and its social and psychological consequences.

About the Author:

Barbara Fass Leavy is Professor of English at Queens College, City University of New York and Adjunct Professor of English in Psychiatry at Cornell University Medical College. She is the author of To Blight with Plague: Studies in a Literary Theme and, with Per Schelde Jacobsen, of Ibsen's Forsaken Merman: Folklore in the Late Plays.

Review:

“This book is a welcome addition to the new scholarship on Caribbean migration and in particular to the burgeoning interest in second-generation Caribbeans in America."
-"New West Indian Guide",

"Moving against the traditional grain of migration scholarship in the United States, McGill forges a compelling cross-sectional dialogue among the languages, discourses, and cultural experiences of native-born and immigrant blacks in the twentieth century."
-"Multicultural Review",
