"A biography of the last of the Romantics describes his rags-to-riches life and career as a journalist, translator, essayist and opium addict who inspired generations of writers with his emotional memoir Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, "--NoveList.
De Quincey became an opium-eater in college because of problems with pain, but the drug allowed him to divest himself of guilt as he became one of the most original journalists of his age. In examining the life of De Quincey, Wilson examines his obsessions with Wordsworth and Coleridge, and discusses his influence on Poe, Dostoevsky, Dickens, and others.
