Writing Under the Influence

At least since the days of Samuel Coleridge, one of the recurrent themes of literary gossip has been various famous writers’ experiments with (or sucumbings to) chemicals.

For those of us who long ago lost track of who experimented with (or succumbed to) what, the following handy chart was recently posted to the Lapham Quarterly.

This is only one among many such handy charts produced by the Quarterly. Others include a graphic summarizing what room of the house various writers preferred to work ina list of books written in prison; and a diagram of physical handicaps overcome by writers and musicians.
