"Mervyn Peake is a master of the macabre and a traveller through the deeper and darker chasms of the imagination" ( The Times)
"Mervyn Peake is a finer poet than Edgar Allan Poe, and he is therefore able to maintain his world of fantasy brilliantly through three novels. [ The Gormenghast Trilogy] is a very, very great work...a classic of our age" (Robertson Davies)
"[Peake's books] are actual additions to life; they give, like certain rare dreams, sensations we never had before, and enlarge our conception of the range of possible experience" (C. S. Lewis)
‘The Gormenghast Trilogy is one of the most important works of the imagination to come out of [this] age’ Anthony Burgess, Spectator
