Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2, Universität Koblenz-Landau (Anglistik), Veranstaltung: A Survey of Literature I: British Literature., Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The 17th century can be regarded as the 'age of melancholy'. It was in fashion to be melancholic. Though it is no wonder that the society of the 17th century saw in Burton's masterpiece, not a guidebook or medical handbook full of warnings how to cope with melancholy, but only some entertaining text full of witty anecdotes and which thus turned into a bestseller and experienced its 5th edition until the death of its' creator, Robert Burton.
