Publisher's Summary

Thomas De Quincey's highly charged and hauntingly accurate account of laudanum addiction is considered the root of all drug novels. From Baudelaire to Burroughs, Confessions of an English Opium Eater paved the way for later generations of writers. Initially prescribed as pain relief for a chronic condition, De Quincey soon found himself compelled by the opium experience. His dreams are recounted here in every hallucinatory detail: threatening Roman armies, sunken cities, and German mountaintops. De Quincey's vivid memories will evoke wonder and curiosity in the listener.

    "Oh pee yum"

    This was a rather long and difficult tedious read, had to do it for school. But it's great for the emotions that it triggers in the reader. Rewarding read.
