Nightmares, confessions, hallucinations, and laudanum-induced fears—Thomas De Quincey’s Confessions of an English Opium-Eater remains an influential autobiography studied by psychologists, addiction specialists, historians and sociologists alike. Published in 1821, De Quincey’s debut work on his own addiction and the effects of drugs on creativity set a unique tone for modern literature.

Revealing the power of the subconscious and freedom of artistic self-expression, De Quincey shares the pleasures of opium, along with the struggles of addiction and the ability of the human imagination. Confessions of an English Opium-Eater’s overwhelming success influenced writers such as Charles Baudelaire, Edgar Allan Poe and William S. Burroughs.
