Summary:

Confessions of an English Opium-Eater is an autobiographical account written by Thomas De Quincey, about his laudanum addiction and its effect on his life. It was criticized for presenting a too positive and too enticing picture of the opium experience to readers. And apparently, several English writers: Francis Thompson, James Thomson, William Blair, and perhaps Branwell Brontë — were led to opium use and addiction by De Quincey's account.
