Poison's Dark Works explores the ways English writings about poisoning prompted new ways of thinking. Placing medical, legal, technical, and scientific texts in conversation with literary ones, this work argues that as crime of the imagination, poisoning serves as a powerful metaphor for the dangers, pleasures, and possibilities of innovation.
Miranda Wilson is assistant professor of English at the University of Delaware.
