520    This book explores the rise of the aesthetic category of 
       addiction in the nineteenth century, a century that saw 
       the development of an established medical sense of drug 
       addiction. Drugs and the Addiction Aesthetic in Nineteenth
       -Century Literature focuses especially on formal 
       intervention--on the uses of literary patterns for 
       intensified, exploratory engagement with unattained 
       possibility--resulting from literary intersections with 
       addiction discourse. Early chapters consider how Romantics
       such as Thomas De Quincey created, with regard to drug 
       habit, an idea of habitual craving that related to self-
       experimenting science and literary exploration; later 
       chapters look at Victorians who drew from similar 
       understandings while devising narratives of repetitive 
       investigation. The authors considered include De Quincey, 
       Percy Shelley, Alfred Tennyson, Christina Rossetti, 
       Charles Dickens, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Marie 
       Corelli.--|cBack cover
