Thomas Love Peacock Biography

Thomas Love Peacock was an English novelist, poet, and literary critic born on October 18, 1785 in Weymouth, Dorset, England. He was known for his satire and wit, and his works often poked fun at the literary and social conventions of his time.

Peacock began his career working as a clerk in the East India Company and later as a private secretary to Sir Home Popham. He began writing poetry and novels in his spare time, and his first published work, "Rhododaphne" a satirical poem, came out in 1818.

His most famous novels include "Headlong Hall" (1816), "Melincourt" (1817), and "Nightmare Abbey" (1818). These works were noted for their humor and satire, and often featured characters who were exaggerated versions of real-life literary figures of the time.

Peacock was also a close friend and collaborator of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, and the two men shared similar views on politics and literature.

Peacock died on January 23, 1866 in Lower Halliford, England. He is remembered for his wit, satire, and his influence on the literary world of his time.
