This is a richly contextualized study of a subject at the nexus of several current, scholarly concerns: colonialism, medical theory, sentimentalism, identity discourse, and fiction. Applying a variety of sources - medical, judicial, theoretical, and historical - to literary works, the book argues that the literary representations about fever formed an essential way to construct identity, and that this identity carried political and ideological implications.
