Editorial Reviews


Review from other book by this author: ''Robert Morrison's biography is astute and revealing, quarrying new sources."

--John Carey, Sunday Times

''Robert Morrison's biography is impressive, the first biography of De Quincey in almost thirty years, and is the first to use all his published and unpublished works.''

--Tom Paulin, The Literary Review

''The time was ripe for a new biography and Morrison has done his man proud. This is an exceptionally well-balanced account."

--Jonathan Bate, Sunday Telegraph
