Humanity and humiliation in illness is a major theme in “Wit” by Margaret Edson. Death is the force that compels Bearing to reflect on her life during the process of the play. “Edson's having used the word wit for the title of the play makes it rather easy to conclude that wit is a prominent theme.” Another theme is the “search for knowledge portrayed both through Bearing, in her search for literary knowledge, and through Posner, in his search for medical knowledge.” Any of these topics would be a good beginning for an essay on this play. There are several good links below to help you with your supporting information.
