Confessions of an English Opium Eater Summary

Confessions of an English Opium Eater (Collins Classics) by Thomas De Quincey

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics.

'I here present you, courteous reader, with the record of a remarkable period in my life . . . '

The Confessions of an English Opium Eater is both a classic of the English autobiographical genre and a hard-nosed study of the effects of drugs on an artistic mind. A close associate of William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the brilliant but troubled de Quincey recounts both the pleasures and pain of opium addiction in captivating prose. The result is by turns enlightened, nightmarish and witty - a faithful mirror of the drug itself.
