This volume contains three novels by English novelist Thomas Love Peacock, including “Headlong Hall”, “Nightmare Abbey”, and “Crotchet Castle”. Thomas Love Peacock (18 October – 23 January ) was an English poet, novelist, and important figure in the East India Company.

      All his books are quick, sometimes funny, epicurean and satirical. Aldous Huxley's early novels were said to be modeled on Peacock's. NIGHTMARE ABBEY has retained a little more notoriety than HEADLONG HALL or CROTCHET CASTLE because of the caricatures of Shelley, Coleridge, and Byron, all present, all lightly mocked.
