Tristimania by Jay Griffiths is a half diary half factual book on manic depression She describes her experiences with the condition and cites one breakdown in particular that lasted three months and forced her to confront herself on the El Camino de Santiago Between recounting this experience Griffiths tells the history and mythological background of manic depression It was pretty good There was a sixty page middle where Griffiths goes on and on about mythology of Hermes the messenger God and his relationship to manic depression and it was not what I wanted to read I ended up skipping it hoping that the remainder of the book wouldn’t change into what that was I wasn’t disappointed with the rest as she returned to her personal account of manic depression and began her journey to El Camino I felt like I understood the condition by the time I finished reading Griffiths made a great attempt to break the wall that is the mind between two individuals As someone who has not suffered through such a state of mind as Griffiths has suffered I was glad to read this and come to a better understanding about bi polar disorder

Summary ô E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Jay Griffiths

Reative both tricking and treating the psyche In exploring its literary influence Griffiths looks at Shakespeare's work and examines the Trickster role tracing its mercuriality through the character of Mercury An intimate raw journey the book illuminates something of the universal human spirit. It was definitely beautifully written But for the fact that the author said we shouldn't romantise mental health illnesses she sure spend a lot of time describing Mercury in the most romantic waysAnd I know that that is probably just the way she could best express her feelings towards her illness and this ain't a self help book still

TristimaniaThere are galaxies within the human mind and madness wants to risk everything for the daring flight reckless and beautiful and crazed Everyone knows Icarus fellBut I love him for the fact that he dared to fly Mania unfurls the invitation to fly too high too near the sun Tristimania is a stark. Bits of this were sublime but I had to skim about 60 pages in the middle because it got so repetitive and relatively uninformative at the same time discussing why MercuryHermes is the god of manic depression It's not an uninteresting line of thought but far fewer pages on the topic would have sufficed I was attracted to this book precisely because it promised heavy use of metaphor to describe the illness and the author's experiences but in general and in that section in particular it could have used a good deal editingthe metaphors just went on and on; some of them were great others a bit flimsy too abstract repetitive etc I was also unimpressed by the poems at the end but I am notoriously picky about poetry which is a notoriously subjective medium in any caseand she did explain her reasons for including them and others will no doubt find them poignant
