The term 'manic depression' gets abused quite a bit. This is the first time I have seen it used in relation to Syl Plath. Can you provide a cite for this please? sjc

Thanks, I think this looks like a sensible attribution. sjc


Well, I guess that I'm more pleased that the recent wash of biographical entries (and by the way, are you entering them in the Biographical Listings pages?) which concentrate on 'mental illness' are stub biographies rather than a list of "Famous Manic Depressives" to go along with "Famous Gay / Lesbian / Bisexuals" or "Famous French People." I prefer biographies to lists. However, it does seem similar - this remote diagnosis - to declaring Aristotle a Famous Gay or Bisexual. --MichaelTinkler
