This, the fifth volume of the Clarendon Press edition of Robert Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy, contains commentary on the text from Partition 1, Section 2, Member 4, Subsection 1 until the end of Part. 1, and on the whole of the second Partition. It thus concludes Burton's account of thecauses, the symptoms, and the prognosis of melancholy, and his examination of the remedies for the disease both spiritual and medical. As before, the aim of the commentary is to aid the reader to understand Burton's meaning (to which end all the passages in Latin are translated) and to identify thesources of his many quotations from and references to other authors. The third and last volume of the commentary, and of the edition, will contains a full Bibliography of these authors and brief biographical notes on them.

Editorial Reviews

`This penultimate tome of a six-volume edition of Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy joins its predecessors in a series variously acclaimed as being "magisterial", "splendid", "lucid", and "magnificent". Such esteem has followed the series since the first volume's publication in 1989; this fifthone unquestionably merits the same praise'Sixteenth Century Journal, XXXII/2
