    Description
    Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast trilogy ranks among the most haunting works of twentieth-century literature, yet it was just one facet of his wide-ranging creativity. Peake's Progress includes sketches for the Titus books, short stories, love poetry, nonsense poetry, 'The Rhyme of the Flying Bomb', a satirical drama, and a radio version of his novel Mr Pye. Caricatures, far darker drawings, stage designs and marvellous illustrations for Treasure Island, and The Hunting of the Snark reveal his equal talent for the visual arts. Peake was a true original, by turn witty, whimsical, nostalgic, grotesque, savage and disquieting.
