Abstract
 
Description
Known primarily as the author of the very popular Gormenghast novels (recently shown on PBS), Mervyn Peake's (1911-1968) poetry has for some time been widely read and appreciated in the eccentric tradition of Lear, Carroll, and Belloc. From the macabre to the brilliantly off-beat, his verse can be enjoyed by all. This collection introduces us to a whole gallery of characters and creatures that are quirky and comical, occasionally alarming, but always magical. - from Amzon
