Thomas Penson De Quincey 15 August 1785 – 8 December 1859) was an English writer, essayist, and literary critic, best known for his Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (1821). Many scholars suggest that in publishing this work De Quincey inaugurated the tradition of addiction literature in the West.

Scholar and editor David Masson attempted a more definitive De Quincey collection: The Works of Thomas De Quincey appeared in fourteen volumes in 1889 and 1890. Yet De Quincey’s writings were so voluminous and widely dispersed those further collections followed: two volumes of The Uncollected Writings (1890), and two volumes of Posthumous Works (1891–93).
