Excerpt from Maid Marian and Crotchet Castle

Master to Admiral. The Master, Thomas Love, Peacock's maternal grandfather, had a leg shot off in the great battle off Dominica when Rodney brought back victory to the flag of Britain. And with this grandfather (for his father died when he was only three years old) Peacock and his widowed mother had their headquarters from 1788 to the end of the century at Chertsey: where Peacock himself would seem to have begun that worship of 'the genius of the Thames' which never left him.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Maid Marian and Crotchet Castle During many years reading, with ever fresh enjoyment, of Peacock s novels, I had until quite the other day - indeed until a time later than that at which I undertook the pleasant duty of writing this preface - been unable to understand what special model the author had had before him in these unique performances. Lord Houghton had noticed, and nobody who had any knowledge of the subject was likely to gainsay, the obvious indebtedness of Peacock to the French tale-tellers of the eighteenth century from Anthony Hamilton to Pigault-Lebrun - though, by the way, Lord Houghton s attribution of the Compere Mathieu to Pigault-Lebrun was a mistake, or more probably a slip of memory. But in the model which Hamilton set, which Voltaire borrowed, and which others imitated from Voltaire, there was a very great deal which is quite different from Peacock - different not merely in the details (where difference was necessary, considering the time and country of the writers), but in other ways much more important. I had not solved the problem when, some nine years since, I first wrote about Peacock in Macmillan s Magazine, and I have not noticed that anybody has ever solved it.
