Three Novels - Headlong Hall - Nightmare Abbey - Crotchet Castle
Publisher: Pomona Press
This volume contains three novels by English novelist Thomas Love Peacock, including “Headlong Hall”, “Nightmare Abbey”, and “Crotchet Castle”. Thomas Love Peacock (18 October 1785 – 23 January 1866) was an English poet, novelist, and important figure in the East India Company. A good friend of Percy Bysshe Shelley, they both had a significant influence on each other's work. Peacock was most famous for writing satirical novels, which usually involved characters sat around a table discussing contemporary philosophical ideas. This collection is not to be missed by lovers of Peacock's marvellous work, and it would make for a fine addition to any discerning bookshelf. Other notable works by this author include: “Maid Marian” (1822), “Gryll Grange” (1861), and “Melincourt” (1817). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with intoductory essays by Sir Walter Raleigh and Virginia Woolf.
