Black Sun: Depression and Melancholia

by

Black Sun: Depression and Melancholia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Black Sun, Julia Kristeva addresses the subject of melancholia, examining this phenomenon in the context of art, literature, philosophy, the history of religion and culture, as well as psychoanalysis. In her discussion she analyzes Holbein's controversial 1522 painting The Body of the Dead Christ in the Tomb, and has revealing comments on the works of Marguerite Duras, Dostoyevsky and Nerval. Black Sun takes the view that depression is a discourse with a language to be learned, rather than strictly a pathology to be treated.

Review:

"A persuasive theory of depression that is both moving and provocative." The New York Times

Synopsis:

This study addresses melancholia, examining the phenomenon in the context of art, literature, philosophy and the history of religion and culture, as well as psychoanalysis. It describes the depressive as one who perceives the sense of self as a crucial pursuit which is almost unobtainable.
