Summary/Abstract: In the proposed second chapter "The Romantic Era of Drugs" from the treatise "The Imaginary Effigies of Drugs" by the French literary scholar Max Milner we are acquainted with the opium-indiced characteristic features in the creative process of such emblematic Romantic artists like Alfred de Musset, Honore de Balzac, Theophile Gautier, Gerard de Nerval and Edgar Allan Poe. The analyzed works reveal the ability of drugs to remove space, time and the separation of the ego from the non-ego - something that has always been the deep goal of the Romantic movement
