Poetic Medicine

A Kind of Magic

by John Fox

Western medicine's zealous preoccupation with technology, prescription drugs, and financial return has taken much of the healing out of health care. Citing research and his own experience with patients, poetry therapist John Fox offers another path; he shows how reading, hearing, and writing poems can be a healing catalyst and can transform people in profound ways.
