"The Anatomy of Melancholy of Robert Burton (1577-1640) is a work of unique brilliance, the most detailed exploration in English on the subject, a journey through the intellect and imagination that becomes, as Kevin Jackson writes in his introduction, 'an anatomy of everything'. Copious, discursive, and endlessly curious about the world, Burton considers topics as diverse as the ideal society, werewolves, the weather, jealousy, coffee, the Great Cham of Tartary and whether California is an island. His extravagant prose was admired by Samuel Johnson and Lawrence Sterne, Byron and Keats and, in our own times, Anthony Burgess."--BOOK JACKET

"English churchman and scholar Robert Burton (1576-1639) was a passionate student of medicine, history, literature, and science--the whole of human knowledge. He was also a witty, pedantic, and eloquent genius, who devoted the major part of his life to writing The Anatomy of Melancholy, one of the richest, most inexhaustible books in the English language. Ostensibly an elaborately systematized medical treatise dealing with various morbid mental states--their causes, symptoms, and cures--the Anatomy is much more: a compendium of memorable utterances on the human condition in general, compiled from classical, scholastic, and contemporary sources. For this edition, the editors carefully selected those passages containing the most psychological and general interest, eliminating a good deal of nonessential material, but retaining the incomparable wit, eccentric charm, imagination, and richness of thought of the original. In short, readers will find here the essence of Burton's vast book--the passages which, according to W. H. D. Rouse, reveal the author's "eternal freshness, his own ingenuous interest, [and] his boyish delight in a good story." Unabridged republicaton of Burton the Anatomist, originally published by George H. Doran Company, New York, 1924." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/dover031/2002019234.html

Burton on melancholy by Robert Burton( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Burton's The Anatomy of Melancholy is one of the great but unclassifiable prose works in English literature: diverting, delightfully rambling, and filled with recondite learning and peculiar facts and speculations. Burton, frustrated at the stagnant, disorderly society in which he found himself, became convinced that the problems of England lay in its inclination to melancholy. This is the starting-point, or pretext, for a hugely wide-ranging survey of the causes, descriptions (and cures) of melancholy. Burton's unsystematic approach to his subject contributes greatly to its charm and interest, for much of it is composed of digressions that are, in effect, self-contained essays on all manner of subjects: cosmology, religious fanaticism, devils and spirits
