De Quincey was born Thomas Quincey in the English city of Manchester on August 15, 1785. The family later adopted the name De Quincey, hypothesizing that they were related to an old Anglo-French family named de Quincis that dated back to the time of the Norman Conquest. De Quincey's father Thomas was a cloth merchant in Manchester, the cradle of English industry, and the family lived in a pleasant country home. He accumulated a huge library of books, and his friends began to treat him as something of a mobile lending library.

No current Talk conversations about this book.
In my first book, Thomas De Quincey's Reluctant Autobiography, I considered Romantic writings in relationship to their magazine context. For example, my book on John Keats for Palgrave's Critical Issues series (2005) focuses on gender and sexuality. At that early stage of my career, I was interested in challenging the isolated purity of a Romantic aesthetic which often divorced writing from its social and political contexts. I was particularly interested in the correlation between reluctance or recalcitrance and Romantic vision . how vision proceeds from difficulty or pressure.
