Welcome to The Faculty of Dreaming where the brain is haunted ghosts write secret inscriptions on the mind language runs riot thought spreads into wide open spaces and the houseless vagrant walks all night. Someone is out there with murderous intent, but the horrors are all inside. From the writings of the great poet and essayist Thomas De Quincey (1785-1859), GHOST QUARTERS unleashes visions that show us the world as a larger reality, a place of vastness and uncertainty, filled with the changing weathers of the psyche.
