In "Black Sun," Julia Kristeva addresses the subject of
melancholia, examining this phenomenon in the context of art,
literature, philosophy, the history of religion and culture, as
well as psychoanalysis. She describes the depressive as one who
perceives the sense of self as a crucial pursuit and a nearly
unattainable goal and explains how the love of a lost identity of
attachment lies at the very core of depression's dark heart.
In her discussion she analyzes Holbein's controversial 1522
painting "The Body of the Dead Christ in the Tomb," and has
revealing comments on the works of Marguerite Duras, Dostoyevsky
and Nerval. "Black Sun" takes the view that depression is a
discourse with a language to be learned, rather than strictly a
pathology to be treated.
