A very good friend of mine, who know my reading habits (and needs), gave me a version of The Anatomy of Melancholy today. I have read several books on the topic, but never had a chance on Burton's original study.
Amongst the books on melancholy I would like to recommend (two in Norwegian, and one available in several languages) are:
- Karin Johannisson: «Melankolske rom. Om angst, lede og sårbarhet gjennom tidene», CappelenDamm (2010)
- Kjersti Bale: «Om melankoli», Pax (2007)
- Julia Kristeva:«Black Sun», (1989)
