Madness evades definition, divides opinion and frightens and touches us all. In his classic anthology, the late Roy Porter compiled a brilliant and comprehensive selection of writings - from George III to Nijinsky, Shakespeare to Poe, John Clare to Robert Schumann, and Nietszche to Artaud - to offer a unique entr e and guide to this most mysterious of worlds.

'The mythology of madness, and the vast literature it has generated, remain as potent as ever . . . A superb and shrewdly edited anthology.' J. G. Ballard
