GORMENGHAST TRILOGY - FOLIO SOCIETY SET - 3 VOLS - TITUS GROAN, GORMENGHAST, TITUS ALONE Hardcover – 1992
by PEAKE MERVYN (Author)
"Reading this book is like being fully immersed in an utterly fantastic world. The way of life is described in microscopic detail until the existance of a world outside gormenghast becomes unreal. When Titus ventures out of the castle, the world (and indeed our world) by comparison is a pale, washed out image of reality. This is a book with which I have become far more emotionally involved than anything I have read before or since. Every reading feels like a homecoming. Peake's imagery is beautifully, indulgently rich, and the prose has been written with constant precision I defy you to find one single line which does not read like poetry."
