Description

In this dispassionate analysis of the act of murder, De Quincey's innovative, idio­syncratic artistic vision found space for gruesome reportage, satire, aesthetic and literary criticism, in a work strewn with examples ranging from antiquity to his own time, including the urban serial-killer John Williams. De Quincey's seminal 1827 work was greatly influential on such writers as Poe, Baudelaire and Borges, and the trace of its impact can still be found today in modern satire, black humour and crime and detective fiction.

ABOUT THE SERIES: Alma Quirky Classics collection includes little gems by famous authors, such as Jonathan Swift, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Oscar Wilde and many others. All the books in this collection are presented in a small paperback format.
