On murder by Thomas De Quincey( )

23 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 1,439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas De Quincey's three essays 'On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts' centre on the notorious career of the murderer John Williams, who in 1811 brutally killed seven people in London's East End. De Quincey's response to Williams's attacks turns morality on its head, celebrating and coolly dissecting the art of murder and its perfections. Ranging from gruesomely vivid reportage and brilliantly funny satiric high jinks to penetrating literary and aesthetic criticism, the essays had a remarkable impact on crime, terror, and detective fiction, as well as on the rise of nineteenth-century decadence." "The volume also contains De Quincey's best-known piece of literary criticism, 'On the Knocking at the Gate in Macbeth', and his finest tale of terror, 'The Avenger', a disturbing exploration of violence, vigilantism, and religious persecution."--Jacket

18 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first time these essays have been collected and identified as De Quincey's. Each essay or article is reprinted with full annotation and the author's reasons for attributing it to De Quincey. The essays vary in length and in subject matter: some are addressed to "The Editor"; some are critical reviews of contemporary magazines; some are week-to-week political commentaries on issues facing the second Tory party. Together they show De Quincey, the journalist, working on a variety of subjects that occur in his writing before and after this time, from the financing of empires to an attack on Macaulay or an analysis of Burke's mind and style. Originally published in 1966. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions.
