On Depression

Depression, Too, is a Thing with Feathers

Andrew Solomon

This article is a survey of the field of depression that looks at the illness in social and cultural terms, attempting to examine how it functions across history, across cultures, and across socioeconomic categories. It is also an examination of the mechanisms of resilience through which some people manage to integrate their depression better than others and so achieve some measure of competence despite the persistence of chronic illness.
