Considered one of Peacock’s best works by his fans, this 1829 comic romance is set during the legendary reign of King Arthur. Peacock uses a historical format, but incorporates his typical sarcasm. The novel's editor, Richard Garnett, describes the book in his introduction as unique among the author's works. "In the charm of romantic incident," writes Garnett, "it surpasses them all."

About 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.
