    1. Interesting survey of Schumann's life through the lens of his mental health throughout his life, largely compiled from Schumann's own correspondence and numerous diaries. Even with the updated version contains new information on the final years at Endenich, the fact that the majority of the book was written in the 1980's is evident in the outdated language used to talk about mental illness.

    2. This book is very informative. I first read it sometime in the 1990's; checked it out from the library. Now that I'm writing Program Notes, I want to read it again. Have ordered the new, expanded edition from Barnes & Noble.

    3. Subtitled "Music and Madness." A fine biography and psychological analysis of Schumann's mental illness. I think the material in this book may be similar to another biography Ostwald wrote, Schumann: The Inner Voices Of a Musical Genius." I take it that both take a psychological approach.

    4. Fascinating review of Schumann's life and works from a psychological and clinical point of view.
