Summary
"This book is the first broad study of the literary impact of the formation of the College of Physicians of London in the early sixteenth century; that momentous event redefined and renewed the long-standing conflict between university-trained physicians and the wide variety of other healers who had long competed for patients in England. Going beyond the usual questions posed about Shakespeare and medicine, this study explores Shakespeare's response to the early modern struggle for control of English medical practice."--BOOK JACKET
