Om föremålet

“Surely everyone is aware of the divine pleasures which attend a wintry fireside; candles at four o’clock, warm hearthrugs, tea, a fair tea-maker, shutters closed, curtains flowing in ample draperies to the floor, whilst the wind and rain are raging audibly without.” ― Thomas de Quincey, Confessions of an English Opium Eater “Confessions of an Opium Eater” was a popular 19th-century book on drug and alcohol abuse and addiction.
