Description - Gormenghast Trilogy,The by Mervyn Peake

Enter the world of Gormenghast. . . Gormanghast is the vast crumbling castle to which the seventy-seventh Earl, Titus Groan, is Lord and heir. Gothic labyrinth of roofs and turrets, cloisters and corridors, stairwells and dungeons, it is also the cobwebbed kingdom of Byzantine government and age-old ritual, a world primed to implode beneath the weight of centuries of intrigue, treachery, manipulation and murder -a world suggested in a tour-de-force that ranks as one of this century's most remarkable feats of imaginative writing.
