Historically seen as a disease afflicting upper class males of superior wit, genius, and creativity, gout has included among its sufferers Erasmus, the Medici, Samuel Johnson, Immanuel Kant, and Robert Browning. It has also been the subject of powerful medical folklore, viewed as a disease that protects its sufferers and assures long life. This book investigates the history of gout and through it offers a new perspective on medical and social history, sex, prejudice, and class, and explains why gout was gender specific.
