Lunar Lecture – From Mr Pickwick to Mesmerism: Charles Dickens in the Medical World by Dr Nicholas Cambridge


Charles Dickens’s broad interest in medicine is evident in his novels and journals. What is less well known is Dickens’s florid medical history. Having carefully read over 14,000 of Dickens’s letters Dr Cambridge has identified 20 separate medical conditions that Dickens suffered from and he believes that Charles Dickens was in denial with some of them. Dr Cambridge will describe these medical conditions in detail and the doctors Charles Dickens was associated with.
