Psyche and Soul in America

Robert H. Abzug

Oxford University Press

After seemingly successful treatment, May comes down with a very serious rebound case of tuberculosis and is sent to the Trudeau Sanitorium in Saranac, New York. There he faces death, reads Kierkegaard, theorizes about the need for the will of the patient to be cured, and develops a very interesting relationship with Cyril Richardson, a professor at Union who was in the last stages of recovery from TB. It is also a stressful time in May’s marriage.
