The Persistence of Melancholia in Arts and Culture

The Persistence of Melancholia in Arts and Culture

This book explores the history and continuing relevance of melancholia as an amorphous but richly suggestive theme in literature, music, and visual culture, as well as philosophy and the history of ideas. Inspired by Albrecht Durer's engraving Melencolia I (1514) - the first visual representation of artistic melancholy - this volume brings together contributions by scholars from a variety of disciplines. Topics include: Melencolia I and its reception; how melancholia inhabits landscapes, soundscapes, figures and objects; melancholia in medical and psychological contexts; how melancholia both enables and troubles artistic creation; and Sigmund Freud's essay Mourning and Melancholia (1917).
