Biographies of Authors
“Confessions of an English Opium-Eater” is an autobiographical narrative by English author Thomas De Quincey. First published in The London Magazine in two parts in 1821, then as a book, with an appendix, in 1822.
The avowed purpose of the first version of “Confessions of an English Opium-Eater” was to warn the reader of the dangers of opium, and it combined the interest of a journalistic exposé of a social evil, told from an addict’s point of view, with a somewhat contradictory and seductive picture of the subjective pleasures of drug addiction. The book begins with an autobiographical account of the author’s addiction. It then describes in effective detail the euphoric and highly symbolic reveries that he experienced under the drug’s influence and recounts the horrible nightmares that continued use of the drug eventually produced.
