About this product
- DescriptionWhat did it mean to be mad in seventeenth-century England? This book uses autobiographical accounts of mental disorder to explore the ways madness was identified and experienced from the inside. It asks how certain people came to be defined as insane, and what we can learn from the accounts they wrote.
