Summary
"The Art of Frenzy is a masterful analysis of public madness from the Renaissance to the Industrial Age. Frenzy - the most flagrant and political form of madness - is the madness of warrior-heroes, kings, scolds, and the possessed. Its representation incorporates a range of traditional characters and figures, from Hercules and Orlando to Medea and Britannia." "Integrating art history with cultural studies, political history, and the history of medicine, the book draws on a wide range of media and contexts - from asylum sculpture to political broadsheets, medical texts, the imagery of revolution, caricatures, and medical illustrations."--Jacket
