Medical Muses: Hysteria in Nineteenth-Century Paris  Medical Muses: Hysteria in Nineteenth-Century Paris by Asti Hustvedt
2011 | ISBN: 0393025608 | English | 384 pages | EPUB | 11 MBA fascinating study of three young female hysterics who shaped our early notions of psychology.

Blanche, Augustine, and Genevieve found themselves in the hysteria ward of the Salpetriere Hospital in 1870s Paris, where their care was directed by the prominent neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot. They became medical celebrities: every week, eager crowds arrived at the hospital to observe their symptoms; they were photographed, sculpted, painted, and transformed into characters in novels. The remarkable story of their lives as patients in the clinic is a strange amalgam of intimate details and public exposure, science and religion, medicine and the occult, hypnotism, love, and theater.
