Vast alchemies : the life and work of Mervyn Peake by G. Peter Winnington( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
"The unforgettable novels of Mervyn Peake (1911-1968), Titus Groan, Gormenghast and Titus Alone, have proved enduringly popular, remaining continuously in print for over thirty years, and the BBC has now produced a major television adaptation of the books. Vast Alchemies explores the life and extraordinary imagination of one of Britain's most singular writers and artists, from his childhood in China to sojourns in an artists' colony on the island of Sark in the Channel Islands and his last years in London." "This biography looks at Peake's novels - published with the encouragement of Graham Greene and championed over the years by such eminent writers as Anthony Burgess, Michael Moorcock and Edwin Morgan - his poems, his illustrations for classics such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Treasure Island, his paintings, drawings and plays and reveals how his life and his experiences were channeled through his unique imagination into his work."--BOOK JACKET
The voice of the heart : the working of Mervyn Peake's imagination by G. Peter Winnington( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 150 libraries worldwide
The works of Mervyn Peake have fascinated readers for sixty years. His Gormenghast sequence of novels - recently serialized to great acclaim by the BBC - stands as one of the great imaginative accomplishments of twentieth-century literature. In The Voice of the Heart, G. Peter Winnington, the world's foremost expert on Peake, sets his subject's fiction in context with the poetry, plays and book illustrations which are less well known. He traces recurrent motifs through Peake's works (islands, animals, and loneliness, for example) and explores in detail Peake's long-neglected play, The Wit to Woo. Through close readings of all these elements of Peake's oeuvre, Winnington is ultimately able to offer unparalleled insight into one of British literature's most vibrant imaginations

Mervyn Peake's vast alchemies : the illustrated biography by G. Peter Winnington( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
"Reading this biography of Mervyn Peake one is left with undiluted admiration for his seemingly boundless creativity. Best known for his Gormenghast trilogy, which has now been introduced to a wider audience with the BBC's all-star television adaptation, Peake made his name as a painter first, one of the outstanding talents of his generation, and was also prodigious in his output in other media, notably his poetry and wonderfully interpreted illustrations of classics such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. G Peter Winnington, who has previously edited the Mervyn Peake Review and Peake Studies together with revised editions of the Gormenghast trilogy, is both a sympathetic and astute guide to the life and works of a remarkable talent."--Publisher description
