“Léo Trézenik's The Confession of a Madman, originally published in 1890 and here presented in English for the first time in a translation by Brian Stableford, is one of the most substantial contributions to a subgenre of Romantic fiction that details delusional fantasies: accounts of strange experiences that could be interpreted as supernatural hauntings or as symptoms of mental derangement.. . The protagonist of The Confession of a Madman never mentions drug use, but the epilogue relating the "factual backcloth" to his delusions is careful to do so, in order to permit the interpretation that the fashionable opiate of the day-morphine-might have made a considerable contribution to the notional narrator's state of mind.” This is a print-on-demand edition. #68683
