The Reasons for Suicide: An Analysis of the Diary of Arthur Inman
Lester, David
Death Studies, v34 n1 p54-70 2010
Previous analyses of the diary of Arthur Inman, who committed suicide in 1963, portrayed him as psychiatrically disturbed, warped, corrupt, and weak. In contrast, the present article argues that he was an eccentric individual whose diary writing enabled him to live a full life by giving his life a purpose and by enabling him to ventilate at length. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
