Covering all the major themes of Thomas De Quincey's prose work, this new study argues the case for acknowledging "the Opium Eater" as a conscious artist, not the "flawed" writer often portrayed in previous critical studies. The book analyzes in detail the various manifestations of De Quincey's writingsoautobiography, biography, fiction, politics, and political economyorelating them to the central concern of his work, the production of the self."
