About the Author: Thomas Love Peacock

English novelist and poet. For most of his life Peacock worked for the East India Co. He was a close friend of Percy Bysshe Shelley, who greatly inspired his writing. His best verse is interspersed in his novels, which are dominated by the conversations of their characters and satirize the intellectual currents of the day. His best-known work, Nightmare Abbey (1818), satirizes romantic melancholy and includes characters based on Shelley, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Lord Byron.

The seventh and final novel of Thomas Love Peacock followed the others after a silence of 30 years, its typical Peacockian format intact: an idyllic, country house setting, a genial host, many opinionated guests, and a romantic love interest. Like all of Peacocks novels, Gryll Grange dissects the philosophy, manners, and culture of his day through a sparkling cocktail of dialogue and poetry.
