The Gormenghast Novels
Mervyn Peake
A doomed lord, an emergent hero, and an array of bizarre creatures haunt the world of the Gormenghast novels which, along with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, reign as undisputed fantasy classics of the highest order. At the center of everything is the seventy-seventh Earl, Titus Groan, who stands to inherit the miles of rambling stone and mortar that form Gormenghast Castle and its kingdom.

In these extraordinary novels, Peake has created a world where all is like a dream - lush, fantaastical, vivid; a symbol of dark struggle. Accompanying the text are his own drawings, illustrating the whole assembly of strange yet very real creatures that inhabit Gormenghast.
