Confessions of an English Opium Eater (1821) relates Thomas De Quincey's early life and eyperiences of opium addiction at a time when that drug was widely used for the relief of pain, and before its addictive qualities were properly understood. It is a work which encompasses amusement with nightmare as the author experiences in turn the marvels of opium induced dreams and the equally vivid nightmares which are their counterpoint.
