Not just a chronicle of drug use but also as a window into the budding American bohemian literary scene A lucid introduction explores the breadth of Ludlow's classical learning as well as his involvement with the nineteenth century subculture that included fellow revelers such as Walt Whitman and the pianist Louis Gottshalk With helpful annotations guiding readers through the text's richly allusive ualities and abundance of references this edition is ideal for classroom use as well as for general reader.
