The madness of kings : personal trauma and the fate of nations by Vivian Hubert Howard Green( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Prithee, nuncle, ' the fool asks King Lear, 'tell me whether a madman be a gentleman or a yeoman?' 'A king, ' Lear replies, 'a king!'" "A remarkable number of rulers throughout Europe have at various points in their lives been considered 'mad'. This unique and pioneering study traces the connections between madness and kingship from the early centuries of the Christian era to modern times. This provides, on the one hand, a fascinating analysis of the ways in which madness, interpreted broadly, has affected rulers in the past as well as dictators in the present and, on the other, an assessment of the impact that this has made on the peoples under their authority. The author cites examples ranging from the 'bewitched' Charles VI of France, whose fragility of mind was such that he believed for a time that he was made of glass and might break, to George III, whose 'peculiarity of constitution' baffled contemporaries; according to The London Chronicle, his illness 'was owing solely to his drinking the waters of Cheltenham'." "King Ludwig II of Bavaria, the patron of Richard Wagner, was deposed on the basis of a medical report that pronounced the king to be 'in a very advanced state of insanity' which made him 'incapable of exercising government'. This is a theme that recurs throughout the book and leads the author to argue that mental health has played a determinant part in the making of history. The horrific manner in which this has been seen to take place in the twentieth century underlines the importance of this challenging and thought-provoking study to our understanding not only of history but also of contemporary politics."

Memoirs by Mark Pattison( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Pattison's Memoirs, compiled during his last illness and published posthumously in 1885, recount the academic's fascinating, if difficult, life. Highly regarded for his learning, Pattison (1813-84) spent most of his adult life in Oxford, first as a student, then a tutor, and eventually, from 1861, as Rector of Lincoln College. He was a close associate of Newman and the Tractarians during the 1840s, though he later tended towards agnosticism. During the 1850s he made several visits to German universities, and developed an interest in early modern Protestant thought. He later edited works by Pope and Milton. Pattison's Memoirs paint a vivid though often bitter portrait of life in Victorian Oxford. They describe his incompetent tutors, his disillusionment with the Oxford Movement, and vicious academic rivalries. Pattison would not permit changes to 'soften' the impact, but his editor omitted certain passages that might 'wound the feelings of the living'
