Riassunto: Thomas Love Peacock was an 18th century English author and satirist. Peacock's work was influenced by his friend Percy Bysshe Shelley. Peacock's novels used the same basic setting that of a group of people at a table discussing and criticizing philosophical opinions. 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.

Dal retro di copertina: This 1818 novel is set in a former abbey whose owner, Christopher Glowry, is host to visitors who enjoy his hospitality and engage in endless debate. Among these guests are figures recognizable to Peacock's contemporaries, including characters based on Lord Byron and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Mr. Glowry's son Scythrop (also modeled on a famous Romantic, Peacock's friend Percy Bysshe Shelley) locks himself up in a tower where he reads German tragedies and transcendental philosophy and develops a "passion for reforming the world." Disappointed in love, a sorrowful Scythrop decides the only thing to do is to commit suicide, but circumstances persuade him to instead follow his father in a love of misanthropy and Madeira. In addition to satire and comic romance, Nightmare Abbey presents a biting critique of the texts we view as central to British romanticism. This Broadview edition includes a critical introduction and a range of illuminating contemporary documents on the novel's reception and its German and British literary contexts. A selection of Peacock's critical and autobiographical writings is also included.
