Titus Alone

by Mervyn Peake
Release date: 1959
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy

Titus Groan, the seventy-seventh Earl of Groan, has abdicated and exiled himself from the mad, dark rites of his ancestral home to wander in the world at large. There he is engulfed in an extraordinary sequence of events. Figures and landscapes – the enigmatic Muzzlehatch, the tender Juno, the ominous Under-River – loom up with all the vivdness of a dream or a nightmare.

In his last visionary satire, Peake chronicles atrocities and hilarities alike with the same deadly control that never wavers.
