On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.

Description

In this dispassionate analysis of the act of murder, De Quincey's innovative, idio syncratic 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.
