Meet the Author


Thomas Love Peacock (1785-1866) was an English novelist and poet, an intimate of Shelley and other Romantic poets.  His best-known novel, Nightmare Abbey (1818), was a satire of gothic novels and the Romantic movement.  His death had a certain tragic irony:  he succumbed to injuries sustained while attempting to rescue his books from a fire.
