This collection sets out to analyze philosophical, psychoanalytic, and aesthetic contexts of the discourse of melancholia in British and postcolonial literature and culture. It seeks to trace the multi-facetted phenomenon of melancholia from the early modern period to the present. The collection also takes into account relevant recent concepts of melancholia in the fields of gender theory, postcolonial theory, animal studies. Authors discussed in detail by a team of leading international scholars including Juliana Schiesari, Andrew Gibson, and Paul Gilroy range from Shakespeare, Sidney, Spenser, and Milton, Margaret Cavendish and Anne Bradstreet, to 18th and 19th century representatives like Mary Leapor, Thomas Carlyle, Robert Louis Stevenson and Joseph Conrad, to recent examples of postmodernist fiction and drama such as J.M. Coetzee and Howard Barker
