The Melancholy Assemblage

Affect and Epistemology in the English Renaissance

Drew Daniel

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • This book picks up on two themes that are of great interest at the moment: first, the question of affect, or feeling, and how it may have shifted in the course of history; and second, a rethinking of matter and the material world. The author's interest in materialism is especially inflected by Deleuze, but is also in dialogue with Freud and Benjamin.
  • The book develops a new analysis of the early modern affect of melancholy as a social matter, one of weak communities of feeling.
