Hide Profile

Thomas Love Peacock was an English author, perhaps best remembered for his satiric novels. He was working as a clerk when he published his first collection of poems, and his verse and essays earned him popularity with the public and his fellow writers. Over the course of his career, he published seven novels, each a unique combination of satire and observation; they are valuable for their commentary on contemporary English society, yet timeless in their themes and humour. Peacock had many literary friends, notably Percy Bysshe Shelley, of whom Peacock wrote a valuable memoir.
