The Wound and the Well-Tied Bow

While reading pleasurably by the pool this weekend, Izzy came across a passage from John Keats’ letters in which the poet explains his cure for depression:

“Whenever I find myself growing vapourish, I rouse myself, wash and put on a clean shirt, brush my hair and clothes, tie my shoestrings neatly, and in fact adonize as I were going out—then all clean and comfortable I sit down to write. This I find the greatest relief.”

Gentlemen suffering from the blues, adonize thyselves!


  1. Men suffer from the vapours too?

  2. Sounds like lovely advice for anyone suffering from a case of malaise.
