A User's Guide to Melancholy takes Robert Burton's encyclopaedic masterpiece The Anatomy of Melancholy as a guide to melancholy, from cause to cure. Through case studies, it explores a Renaissance disease of the mind that inclined its sufferers towards sadness and fear but also delusion, despair, hilarity, and artistic creativity.
