The link between the affective disorders (depression and bipolar illness) and writing creativity goes back to Aristotle, who famously asked, "Why is it that all men who are outstanding in philosophy, poetry or the arts are melancholic?" Indeed, a fifteen-year study of writers at the Iowa Writers' Workshop found that 80 percent of the writers either lived with affective illness or had experienced an episode at some point in their lives (compared to 30 percent of non-writer controls). Writers and poets with known and suspected affective disorder span the centuries; the twentieth gave us Woolf, Hemingway, Dylan Thomas, Robert Lowell, Anne Sexton and David Foster Wallace, among many others.
