Thomas Love Peacock Nightmare Abbey

Peacock Thomas Love Nightmare Abbey


Nightmare Abbey was written in 1818 by Thomas Love Peacock. It is a gothic satire, which delights in parodying the current fashions of the time, such as the Romantic Movement in Literature and Transcendental Philosophy. Although the modern reader can enjoy these witty descriptions even today, it is debatable whether all the allusions can be appreciated without an in-depth study of the work, as Peacock referred to many friends of the family and historical characters.

Thomas Love Peacock Nightmare Abbey by Thomas Love Peacock, Fiction, Humor


Most of the characters in the novella are based on historical figures whom Peacock wishes to pillory.Mr. Glowry was a very consolate widower, with one small child. That child -- a son -- was named Scythrop, after a maternal ancestor who had hanged himself one rainy day in a fit of tedium. The coroner's jury eulogized him with the comprehensive phrase of felo de se -- on which account Mr. Glowry held his memory in high honor, and made a punchbowl of his skull.

Thomas Love Peacock Nightmare Abbey


Mr Glowry is a melancholy gentleman who likes to surround himself with servants with long faces or dismal names such as Raven, Graves or Deathshead. The few visitors he welcomes to his home are mostly of a similar cast of mind: Mr Flosky, a transcendental philosopher; Mr Toobad, a Manichaean Millenarian; Mr Listless, Scythrop's languid and world-weary college friend; and Mr Cypress, a misanthropic poet. The only exception is the sanguine Mr Hilary, who, as Mr Glowry's brother-in-law, is obliged to visit the abbey from family interests.

Thomas Love Peacock Maid Marian by Thomas Love Peacock, Fiction, Classics


Here are all the heroes and villains we know and love, recast by a keen Victorian wit. The heroes are heroic (and just a little self-serving, though generous) the villains are villainous (and greedy!); and the tale is told as keenly as it can be. Those who haven't read Peacock are in for a treat.
