A few words...

If it is true - as the Bard says - that "the lunatic, the lover, and the poet are of imagination all compact," should we treat a creative mind the same as a diseased one? Should an infatuation with the voices in one's head be considered all that dissimilar to an infatuation with the voice of one who says, "I love thee"?

Men and women throughout the ages have done "crazy" things for love and for art - self-murder, self-mutilation, and self-sacrifice being among the most common. If lunacy means losing touch with reality to the point of total malfunction, then those afflicted with the arts and with eros may have only lost touch with certain parts of reality. For the artist, one loses touch with that part of reality that fails to inspire; likewise, for the lover, it means losing touch with that part of reality that fails to evoke. Depending on the individual, this "eclipse of the heart" may drive one to create wonder, or atrocity.

Generalities aside, Shakespeare has given us much to consider with his statement.
