Summary
Despite 21st-century fears of a modern 'epidemic' of loneliness, its history has been sorely neglected. This book offers a radical new interpretation of loneliness as an emotional language and experience. Using letters and diaries, philosophical tracts, political discussions, and medical literature from the eighteenth century to the present, historian of the emotions Fay Bound Alberti argues that loneliness is not a historical, universal phenomenon
