This chapter examines Thomas De Quincey's criticisms of German philosophy and literature in comparison with Coleridge's, and shows the similar ideological constraints that operate on De Quincey's mediation of German thought in England. De Quincey's seemingly disingenuous use of his German sources – like Samuel Taylor Coleridge's – reflects his involvement in the construction of English nationalism, built ironically on the very foundations both writers explicitly sought to undermine.

Keywords:   Thomas De Quincey, German philosophy, German literature, English nationalism
