Overview

The Inner World of Abraham Lincoln by Michael Burlingame

Based primarily on long-neglected manuscript and newspaper sources--and especially on reminiscences of people who knew him--this psychobiography casts new light on Lincoln. Burlingame uses a blend of Freudian and Jungian theory to interpret the psyche of the 16th president.

This is the latest of over 120 books on Lincoln or collateral in subject to Lincoln that a teaching friend and colleague and I have read in the last two years and presented nationally in a 100-plus page annotated bibliography. And it is one of the best. Burlingame has meticulously researched his topic, and has divided the subject into logical and interesting chapters ranging from Lincoln's melancholy to his temper, from his relations with women to his being a parent and "parenting" younger men with whom he came in contact personally. The author takes each subject, analyzes it thoroughly, gives his interpretation, then gives numerous reasons for his interpretation compared to that of others. This is a must-read for the Lincoln enthusiast, and one that will hold the attention of any reader.
