Description

Eric G. Wilson, professor of English at Wake Forest University, argues that melancholia is necessary to any thriving culture, that it is the muse of great literature, painting, music, and innovation—and that it is the force underlying original insights. What most people take for contentment, Wilson argues, is living death, and what the majority takes for depression is a vital force.
