Sinopse

The anguished, volatile intensity we associate with the artistic temperament, often described as 'a fine madness,' has been thought of as a defining aspect of much artistic genius. Now, Kay Jamison's work, based on years of studies as a clinical psychologist and prominent researcher in mood disorders, reveals that many artists who were subject to alternatingly exultant and then melancholic moods were, in fact, engaged in a lifelong struggle with manic-depressive illness. Drawing on recent advances in genetics, neuroscience, and psychopharmacology, Jamison presents the proof of the biological foundations of this frequently misunderstood disease, and applies what is known about the illness, and its closely related temperaments, to the lives of some of the world's greatest artists - Byron, van Gogh, Shelley, Poe, Melville, Schumann, Coleridge, Virginia Woolf, Burns, and many others.
