Thomas De Quincey (1785-1859) is one of the greatest English prose writers of the nineteenth century. He deeply influenced Edgar Allan Poe and numbers Dickens, Proust and Virginia Woolf among his many fans. This edition includes virtually all of De Quincey's published work plus the bulk of his unpublished manuscripts.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.At 21 volumes, this edition is committed to completeness. Texts are drawn from the first published versions, with variants from the author's revised editions, and a full second version provided where he thoroughly recast his own work at a later date. The bulk of de Quincey's unpublished manuscripts are presented here, among them several works only recently re-discovered. For example, in Volume 2, the transcript of the manuscript to Part I of Confessions of an English Opium Eater, discovered in 1989, is published for the first time. Almost every volume contains important material never previously published.Modern scholarship on De Quincey has progressed so far in recent times as to make the acquisition of an up-to-date set of his works a necessity for any institution where serious study of De Quincey, Romantic and Victorian literature take place.
