 Keats on Depression and the Mightiest Consolation for a Heavy Heart – Brain Pickings (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Having witnessed clinical depression up close, I think it worth pointing out that circumstances often play less of a role in it than one might think. A genuinely depressed person will still feel depressed even if he wins the lottery. Admittedly, though, the connection between circumstance and depression is hard to gauge. Benjamin Robert Haydon could hardly have been in a good mood when he committed suicide. But he also was facing debts of more than £3,000.
