I have been pleased to see the responses to my posts on Virginia Woolf and her difficulties with depression and anxiety. Many of her contemporaries, as well as those artists before and following her, grappled with issues of mental health – all the which were contributed to or exacerbated by societal, medical, as well as scientific (or lack of) factors. I will continue to bring to this forum some of the literary sources that highlight these issues. I would welcome your suggestions and thoughts.
Following is a review done that includes some interesting references.
