Abstract:

Lisa Diedrich considers illness narratives, demonstrating that these texts not only recount symptoms but also describe illness as an event that reflects wider cultural contexts, including race, gender, class, and sexuality. Looking at narratives including Susan Sontag's Illness As Metaphor, Audre Lorde's The Cancer Journals, and Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's White Glasses, Diedrich demonstrates how language both captures and fails to capture these scenes of loss.
