From the Publisher:
In this extraordinary first play, which will move to Broadway in the winter of 1999, Margaret Edson has created a work that is as intellectually challenging as it is emotionally immediate. At the start of Wit, Vivian Bearing, Ph.D., a renowned professor of English who has spent years studying and teaching the brilliantly difficult metaphysical sonnets of John Donne, has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. Her approach to her illness is not unlike her approach to the study of Donne: aggressively probing, intensely rational, deeply witty. But during the course of her illness-and her stint as a prize patient in an experimental chemotherapy program at a major teaching hospital-Vivian comes to reassess her life and her work with a profundity and humor that are transformative both for her and for the audience.The Pulitzer Prize-winning drama explores the role of nurses in the care of terminally ill patients, as Professor Vivian Bearing endures eight months of experimental chemotherapy in a grueling effort to fight ovarian cancer
Annotation:
This Pulitzer Prize-winning play concerns the intersection of metaphysical poetry and terminal cancer. The character Vivian Bearing, a prominent professor, assesses her life during a traumatic hospital stay.
