The Limits of My Language - Meditations on Depression

Author(s): Eva Meijer; Antoinette Fawcett (Translator)

the self | new arrivals

A beautiful and moving study of depression, in which the author draws on her personal experience of mental illness as well as her deep knowledge of philosophy, to show the issue in a new light.

Much has been written about the treatment of depression, but its wider meaning has garnered less attention. Here Eva Meijer draws deeply on her own experiences to offer valuable insight into depression, framing it in a brand new way. She explores how depression can make us grow out of shape over time, like a twisted tree, how we can sometimes remould ourselves in conversation with others, and how to move on from our darkest thoughts. The Limits of My Language is a poignant, stimulating search for the things, great and small - from philosophy and art to sitting quietly with a cat - that make our lives worth living.
