Description - The Letters of Thomas Love Peacock by Thomas Love Peacock

Thomas Love Peacock (1785-1866) was a lifelong and assiduous letter-writer at a time when the letter was often virtually an art-form in itself. He had a wide circle of correspondents, and was a close friend of Shelley, whom he assisted over both personal and business affairs after Shelley's abandonment of his wife Harriet and departure to Italy. Friend also of many Radicals of the early 19th century, his letters often display the satiric wit of his published prose works such as "Headlong Hall" and "Crotchet Castle". In the later part of his life he rose to high position in the East India Company's service, succeeding James Mill, under whom he had worked, as Examiner. This two-volume edition will be valuable to students of Romantic literature and to historians of the period.
