Description - The Works of Thomas de Quincey by Grevel Lindop
Thomas De Quincey (1785-1859) is one of the greatest English prose writers of the 19th century. Until now there has not been an adequate edition of his works - a source of frustration to scholars of De Quincey and to those researching Coleridge and Wordsworth. De Quincey deeply influenced Edgar Allan Poe and number Dickens, Proust and Virignia Woolf among his many fans. This edition will include virtually all of De Quincey's published works plus the bulk of his unpublished manuscripts. Highlights include: De Quincey on murder, "Autobiographical Sketches", his 1803 Diary, writings on politics, economics, literary theory and his contributions to the "Edinburgh Saturday Post". In volume 2, the transcript to the manuscript of Part 1 of "Confessions of and English Opium Eater", discovered in 1989, is published for the first time. It is fair to say that every volume will contain material never previously published.
