But one broad thematic question arises time and time again – how can we reconcile the mad-as-philosopher position of some literary characters with the equally-represented disintegrated lives and psyches of other characters? And if these positions are irreconcilable, then can we be content with suggesting that they represent the broadness of human experiences of madness, in opposition to the medically accepted model that madness needs containing, assessing, and treating? We can return to Felman for help in looking at this question.
Madness is uniquely individual and thus a ‘true-to-life’ characterisation, as suggested by Oyebode, refers either to a clinically identifiable, ‘realistic’ representation of mental illness, or to the singularity of life itself. Fiction writers do not seek clinical precision or standardisation; instead, they describe and depict the experience of experiences. Scholars have argued that the fundamental basis of madness is the essence of being human – to be human is to be able to experience madness.
