Anthem Studies in Bibliotherapy and Well-Being offers a multi-dimensional model of literary thinking beyond the scope of medicalised interventions or self-help manuals and within the context of a radically new understanding of the uses of reading literature within the wider world. Testing the meaning and value of what is often called ‘bibliotherapy’, titles in the series span literary criticism, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, sociology, medicine and neuroscience. The series explores specific reading-acts but also proposes literary reading itself as a form of thinking more profound for mental well-being than automatic or literal processing.
