Was Beethoven experiencing syphilitic euphoria when he composed "Ode to Joy"? Did van Gogh paint "Crows Over the Wheatfield" in a fit of diseased madness right before he shot himself? Was syphilis a stowaway on Columbus's return voyage to Europe? The answers to these provocative questions are likely "yes," claims Deborah Hayden in this riveting investigation of the effects of the "Pox" on the lives and works of world figures from the fifteenth through the twentieth centuries.

The follow-up to the widely praised "Opium," In The Arms of Morpheus is the shocking story of how a simple but bewitching substance, touted as a miracle drug, enslaved unwitting generations of 19th century writers, artists and ordinary citizens. Extracted from opium, the sap of the poppy, this popular drug was welcomed into the homes of rich and poor alike, in the guise of medicinal uses in the form of laudanum and opium elixirs, and as pure, undisguised morphine. Laudanum contained opium, saffron, cinnamon and alcohol. In the spirit of 19th century progress, other opium concoctions we... View more info

19 Chapters 296 Pages 83,560 Words Synopsis: Once you figure out that practicing medicine is war at times, you need a stategy. You want to fight a just war against the unfathomable. incompetence, greed, or the next random injustice, but no plan suits every skirmish. You reason, you plead, cajole, or fly off the handle until you find a foxhole. Then, the tincture of time can work its magic, and a dodgy sense of gallows humor comes in handy. Soon, your best medicine depends more on how well you can fly by the seat of your pants than on any wisdom you can muster. View more info
