Thomas Love Peacock (1785-1866) was an English novelist, poet, and official of the East India Company. The final novel of Thomas Love Peacock followed the others after a silence of 30 years, its typical Peacockian format intact an idyllic, country house setting, a genial host, many opinionated guests, and a romantic love interest. Like all of Peacocks novels, Gryll Grange dissects the philosophy, manners, and culture of his day through a sparkling cocktail of dialogue and poetry.
