Panacea by Alison Strub


Categories: ,


A meditation on illness, healing, and caregiving and its limits, Panacea is elegiac.Using the framework of archaic remedies, Panacea addresses the psychological burden of caregiving, particularly when it is futile. Drawing on themes of transformation and turning one thing to another (lead to gold / healthy to unhealthy), Panacea reminds us that even in the days of modern medical advances, illness is as old as life itself.
