Confessions Of An English Opium Eater And Other Writings

Confessions Of An English Opium Eater And Other Writings

Regular price Rs. 399.00 Rs. 0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

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.
