Few lives have been more tragic than that of Thomas de Quincey (1785-1859), who possessed both the capacity and the urge to, write, but was dogged by such ill-health that the only drug he could take to keep him going very nearly took away from him the will to write that is every author's life-blood.
This dramatic feature around his life, first broadcast in October 1935, tells of his early days at Manchester Grammar School ; of persistent ill-health ; of his running away from school and settling penniless in London. His meeting with Ann, their passionate love, brief companionship, and tragic parting, goes to the making of one of the loveliest and most pathetic love stories in the English language.
