Complex Sorrow: Reflections on Cancer and an Abbreviated Life - used book

1989, ISBN: 156639192X

ID: 3898184

In 1988, Marianne Paget published the "Unity of Mistakes: A Phenomenological Interpretation of Medical Work" (Temple) in which she argued that error is an intrinsic feature in medicine - an experimental and uncertain activity. Her subsequent research focused on medical negligence and on miscommunication and silence a as cause and product of error in medicine. While pursuing her research on negligence, she found out that she was an example of it. Chronic back pain that had been misdiagnosed as muscle spasms turned out to be a symptom of a rare and fatal cancer that claimed Paget's life in December 1989. This collection of her personal and professional writings on the phenomenon of error in medicine chronicles a young scholar's courageous struggle to make sense of a tragic coincidence. Discovering that she was living the charges and painful topic that she had studied so deeply, Paget write poignantly and analytically until the last week of her life about this uncanny parallel. "It is very tricky to come to terms with the reality of death without becoming trapped in that reality," wrote "Tracy" Paget to her friends. In this book, she describes "the odd way my life began to mirror my work"; her search for "life rites" when face with tasks involving wills, last rites, and farewells; and her indomitable and forthright attempt to remain intensely alive in the face of death. "A Complex Sorrow", her final project, comprises essays, letters, and a journal recording her last year.
