When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi is a unique three-part narrative that follows a variety of perspectives while following the transformation – both physically and spiritually – of Kalanithi. Following his diagnosis of Stage IV metastatic lung cancer, the Stanford University neurosurgical resident found himself once again questioning: “What makes human life meaningful?” Through his education, both in the humanities and the sciences, Kalanithi found that literature and medicine supplement one another. By having the relationship he does with literature and medicine, Kalanithi is a step above other physicians from a humanistic standpoint.

Kalanithi actively uses imagery and metaphor to dissect this passage’s message.
