Phobias in Poetry

A poem, a work of art, a photograph, a film clip, or a brief passage from a literary work often can expose important aspects of how a person experiences an illness in ways that science cannot. This ability to transcend the limits of current scientific knowledge, to illuminate important aspects of suffering and sickness, and to enrich understanding of healing makes art and the humanities essential parts of medicine and medical education.

Taking this into consideration, we (Enabling Unit members) worked on the the classic 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' by Coleridge and analysed it from a Doctor's specs as well as a reader's lens. The outcome 'Phobias in Poetry' is published under 'New Horizon' category of PubMed indexed IJPM. You can read the full article here.
