143. You might recall Dr Darnay in A Tale of Two Cities
He spent many years in a French prison, in solitary confinement. This is a fictional tale, I know, but it was considered a good reflection of the system of the times, and his captors DID give him cobblers tools, which at least did give him some purpose, at least in his own mind.
Even so, it took quite some time for him to recover from his mental torture of totally enforced isolation.
