Reviews

"Dr. Jamison's Touched with Fire is a remarkable achievement. As a scientist who has done distinctive research in the mood changes of manic-depressive illness, she writes with jargon-free eloquence of the interaction of the illness and the artistic temperament." -Leslie A. Marchand, Emeritus Professor, Rutgers University

"This enthralling study of the relation between manic-depressive illness and the artistic temperament enlarges our understanding of the creative process in new and unexpected ways. Professer Jamison combines psychiatric sense with artistic sensibility in an original and marvelous book". -Dr. Anthony Storr, Author of Solitude: A Return to the Self and Music and the Mind.

"Dr. Jamison roams with ease unusual in a scientist over the works of the great poets, showing how many of them were deeply involved with manic-depression. By the end of the book the reader has quietly been rerouted to the profoundly ethical question of whether the eradication of this disease by modern molecular biology would not ultimately be a diminution of the human race."-Robert Bernard Martin, Professor Emeritus, Princeton University.
