Was Robert Schumann Insane? Or Just An Echt-Romantic?
"The life and death of Robert Schumann is, to most appearances, a case history of romantic excess. The composer did his best to embody the spirit of the age, placing emotion above reason, venerating nature and creating the art that the Zeitgeist demanded." He also threw himself into the Rhine and ended his life in an asylum. The Wall Street Journal 12/13/12
