Welcome to De Quincey in Everton
This blog has been set up to compliment a recent talk I gave on ‘De Quincey In Everton’ as part of Cathy Butterworth’s project Sketches In Britain.
The purpose of the blog is three fold:
Firstly, the blog will act as a vehicle for my on-going research into De Quincey’s time in Everton. My aim is to supplement the existing biographical information by placing his visits in time and space especially to explore the topography of his 1803 Diary, which he wrote during one of his visits to Everton.
Secondly, I will be documenting my psychogeographical wanderings around Liverpool in search of De Quincey’s spirit.
