Thomas Love Peacock
18 October 1785 – 23 January 1866

The T. L. Peacock Society attempts to popularise the eximious virtues
of Peacock's novels and other writings, as well as promoting the love
of Classical learning which was a feature of his life and works.

The society is planning a second international conference
on Peacock to be held in Britain (or Australia) in 2010.
