"G. Rigatos is an indefatigable and admirably resourceful student and investigator who has established by himself a specific sector of literary investigation by locating and systematically commenting on specific passages in literature refering to the human body, its state of health and mainly its diseases.
This is a beneficial contribution since, no matter from where literature starts (as any human activity) it will lead up to the body of its heroes, which is the vehicle of ideas, as well as emotions and actions.
[ ] I would say that G. Rigatos stands in the center of these studies. In his investigations he has also payed special attention to the search of these topics in folk civilization and folk literature..."'
