"Maid Marian" is a 1822 novella by English novelist Thomas Love Peacock. His fourth long work of fiction, it it's completion was delayed due to Peacock's recruitment into the East India Company in 1819. Because of this, it was considered an copy of Sir Walter Scott's "Ivanhoe", even though its composition had actually predated Scott's work. An exciting and entertaining story full of rivers, castles, forests, abbeys, monks, maids, kings, and bandits; "Maid Marian" is an epic tale not to be missed by lovers of Peacock's fantastic work and fans of romantic fiction. Thomas Love Peacock (18 October 1785 - 23 January 1866) was an English poet, novelist, and important figure in the East India Company. A good friend of Percy Bysshe Shelley, they both had a significant influence on each other's work. Peacock was most famous for writing satirical novels, which usually involved characters sat around a table discussing contemporary philosophical ideas. Other notable works by this author include: "Headlong Hall" (1815), "Gryll Grange" (1861), and "Melincourt" (1817). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with intoductory essays by Sir Walter Raleigh and Virginia Woolf.
