Томас де Квинси Confessions of an English Opium-Eater and Other Writings


Thomas De Quincey, an English essayist during the turn of the nineteenth century, began life as a fairly sickly child, and would spend much of his life in the grips of one illness or another. Through a series of misguided attempts at getting an education, De Quincey dropped out of college and instead became a vagrant. The youth barely had enough food to eat and resorted to begging in order to survive. These years served as a depressing foundation for his later years, which were marred by isolation and solitude. After eventually returning to and graduating from university, De Quincey became a journalist and translator. His works gained little popularity. De Quiney's resulting depression crippled him, and the forlorn man turned to opium in order to escape from reality. The use quickly turned to abuse, though, which was the subject of De Quincey's most famous work «Confessions of an English Opium-Eater.» The piece made him an overnight sensation as it detailed his personal background and spiraling drug abuse. De Quincey revised and republished the piece a number of times in order to address questions and criticisms that the population had about his portrayal of the addiction. This essay, along with three other works, are included in the collection «Confessions of an English Opium-Eater and Other Writings.»

Thomas De Quincey The Confessions of an English Opium-Eater and Other Writings


In an examination of his laudanum addiction and the dreams and visions the drug engendered, Thomas De Quincey lays bare the celestial pleasures and infernal lows of an existence dependent on “subtle and mighty opium”. At once moving and rhapsodic, and suffused with a poetic and lyrical beauty, Confessions of an English Opium-Eater hauntingly evokes frightful scenes and phantasmagorical night-time wanderings, while reality, dream and memory blur and intertwine in a nebulous and protean haze.Published anonymously in The London Magazine, the Confessions were an immediate success, and soon speculation was rife as to the identity of the mysterious Opium-Eater. The work, which introduced the literary world to De Quincey's unique “impassioned prose”, is now widely deemed to be De Quincey's masterpiece.

Томас де Квинси Suspiria de Profundis and Other Writings


Thomas De Quincey was an English author during the Romantic movement, associating with writers like Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth. Best known for his command of the psychological fantasy story, De Quincey produced stories of the curious and obscure, but always with the traditional Romantic emphasis on feeling. His masterwork, «Confessions of an English Opium Eater» (1821), stemmed from his own laudanum addiction, and was followed by «Suspiria de Profundis», a collection of essays which continued to capture the same dark brilliance as in «Confessions». The collection was originally published in fragmentary form, and remained unfinished upon De Quincey's death in 1859. This edition includes «The Affliction of Childhood,» a reflection on the death of the author's two sisters in childhood, «Levana and our Ladies of Sorrow,» one of his best-known works about the Roman goddess of childbirth, and «The English Mail-Coach,» on the «grandeur and power» of the English mail-coach system.

Томас де Квинси Confessions of an English Opium-Eater


“I here present you, courteous reader, with the record of a remarkable period in my life: according to my application of it, I trust that it will prove not merely an interesting record, but in a considerable degree useful and instructive.” So Thomas de Quincey begins his shocking autobiography, the “Confessions of an English Opium-Eater”. Originally published anonymously in two parts in the “London Magazine” in 1821, it is a gripping account of one Englishman’s addiction to laudanum, a tincture which contained a large amount of opium. De Quincey, born in 1785, begins by describing his early life and the difficult psychological factors he experienced as a young adult, including time spent destitute and living on the street, which contributed to his long addiction. De Quincey then candidly details the beginning of his opium use in 1804 and how much he enjoyed the effects of the drug for several years. Beginning in 1812, De Quincey began to experience many ghastly and negative effects of his long drug use and describes in shocking detail the nightmares, insomnia, frightening visions, and debilitating physical effects he suffered from it. In so doing De Quincy’s account remains a fascinating warning of the dangers of opium addiction.

Quincey Thomas Confessions of an English Opium-Eater - The Original Classic Edition


Thomas De Quincey wrote this account of his life and his struggle with drug addiction to both educate on the evils of opium and also to share the dream trances that he experienced while in the throes of addiction. This version by Penguin presents De Quinceys original version from 1821 and then his revision notes from 1856. There is also a short section of comments that De Quincey made concerning his Confessions from 1821-1855. <p> The Confessions, in a nutshell, begin by recounting De Quinceys early life and the events that led him to begin taking opium. The rest of the tale deals with his problems with opium and his dreams that came from taking the drug. The original version isnt that long of a read, but his revision notes add considerable length, and for the most part werent as interesting as the 1821 original. <p> De Quinceys prose is absolutely amazing. He is one of the most gifted writers Ive had the pleasure to read (up to this date). Many times I felt as though I was lifted up by his words and carried directly into his world. Ive yet to have as profound an experience with any other author. <p> I can only imagine how prolific he might have been if he had not been saddled with an opiate addiction. <p> An amazing book and one I highly recommend to those who are prepared to read and understand it. For those looking for a justification for drug use, look elsewhere!
