Description
Author of the famed and scandalous Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, Thomas de Quincey (17851859) enjoyed friendships with leading poets and men of letters in the Romantic and Victorian periods, including William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Thomas Carlyle. He was engaged with nearly every facet of literary culture, including the roles played by publishers, booksellers, and journalists in literary production and evaluation, and his writing was a tremendous influence on Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, and William S. Burroughs. Robert Morrison's biography passionately argues for the critical importance and enduring value of this neglected icon of English literature.

"The time was ripe for a new biography and Morrison has done his man proud. This is an exceptionally well-balanced account."Sunday Telegraph (London)
