Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Dust Jacket Included
Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, viii, 492 pp. "De Quincey is perhaps best known to the modern reader for his autobiographical The Confessions of an English Opium Eater. He was also, however, an extensive essayist and critic, full of curiosity and learning, who wrote in such contemporary journals as Blackwood's and the London Magazine on an immense variety of topics. The editor of this selection from De Quincey's critical work has gathered material, from the year 1820 to the late 1850s, representing the wide range of his criticism. The volume is divided into three sections, covering Literary Theory, Foreign Literature and English Literature. The items illustrate De Quincey's contribution to the critical discussion of topics which include Language, Style, Rhetoric, Greek Tragedy, Novels, as well as his comments on such English writers as Shakespeare, Milton, Pope, Goldsmith, Clare, Hazlitt, Keats, and Coleridge and Wordsworth, both of whom he knew very well." - from the blurb.
