MELANCHOLY EXPERIENCE IN LITERATURE OF THE LONG EIGHTEENTH CENTURY: BEFORE DEPRESSION, 1660-1800
This book-length study of depressive writing and writing about depression in the long eighteenth century is edited by Allan Ingram and Stuart Sim, with chapters by Clark Lawlor, Richard Terry, John Baker, Stuart Sim, Leigh Wetherall-Dickson and Allan Ingram. Published by Palgrave (2011).
'Demonstrating what literature of the past has to teach us about our own approach to healing depression, the book as a whole will be useful to academics and non-academics interested in the heritage of depressive illnesses, to individuals suffering from depression, and to physicians and psychologists wishing to situate historically their own practices.'
Elizabeth Dolan, Review of English Studies
