Thomas De Quincey

In this remarkable autobiography, Thomas De Quincey hauntingly describes the surreal visions & hallucinatory nocturnal wanderings he took thru London--& the nightmares, despair & paranoia to which he became prey--under the influence of the then-legal painkiller laudanum. Forging a link between artistic self-expression & addiction, Confessions seamlessly weaves the effects of drugs & the nature of dreams, memory & imagination. First published in 1821, it paved the way for later generations of literary drug users, from Baudelaire to Burroughs, & anticipated psychoanalysis with its insights into the unconscious.
