Confessions of an English Opium-Eater
by Thomas de Quincy
A personal biographical memoir: The strange visions and dreams of a poet under the influence of opium. A classic of the English literature.
“His essays and prose-poems are Gothic both in their weird emotional intensity and their digressive complexity of structure; the foregrounds are filled with enigmatic sumbols of psychological and spiritual power and resistance; and at the focal point of every work we find the artist-hero himself, ‘busy on his aspiring labours’ as he struggles upward towards some elusive pinnacle of serenity from which he may view the mysteries of human existence embodied in the events of his own life.”
