Headlong Hall

Book cover
By: (1785-1866)

"Headlong Hall" is a delightful satire that pokes fun at the intellectual elite of early 19th century England. The characters are all eccentric and larger-than-life, making for an entertaining and colorful cast. The dialogue is witty and sharp, with plenty of humorous repartee. The plot is filled with absurd situations and misunderstandings that keep the reader engaged. Overall, this novel is a highly enjoyable and clever romp through the world of high society and intellectual snobbery. Highly recommended for fans of classic British humor.

Book Description:
Headlong Hall is the first novel by Thomas Love Peacock, published in 1815 (dated 1816). As in his later novel Crotchet Castle, Peacock assembles a group of eccentrics, each with a single monomaniacal obsession, and derives humor and social satire from their various interactions and conversations. The setting is the country estate of Squire Harry Headlong Ap-Rhaiader, Esq. in Wales.
