The Life and Adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves

Tobias George Smollett

This text (1762) is a neglected picaresque piece by one of the great 18th-century English novelists. Its most intriguing aspect is its subject matter - madness - and its ironic exploration of enlightenment notions of sanity. Much of the action takes place in and around a lunatic asylum.
