Abstract

These volumes cater to an increasingly diverse readership with a fascinating range of texts, including De Quincey's gothic novel Klosterheim, the autobiographical Sketches From Childhood, essays on such topics as “Homer and the Homeridae,” “The Caesars,” the Corn Laws, political economy, British imperialism, natural philosophy, gold-rushes, China and India, language, politics and “The Sphinx's Riddle,” as well as manuscript transcripts on such subjects as French drama, financial frauds, and Robert Peel. The writer outlines some of the fundamental presuppositions about thought, experience, and language that inform these works.
