Nightmare Abbey

Nightmare Abbey
by Thomas Love Peacock

Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2010
ISBN/ASIN: 1605975443

Nightmare Abbey was written in 1818. This satire pokes fun at the Romantic Movement in English literature. The characters in the novel are based on historic figures. Peacock sees the British as being obsessed with transcendental philosophical systems and morbid subjects of any kind. Many of the allusions in the book are specific to the period in which it was written, yet there is enough relevance to make this a delight to read.
