The Thomas Love Peacock Society was established:-
to publish and to publicize the novels and other works of Peacock;
to foster the study of Peacock's life and works; and
to promote the literature of classical antiquity and English literature generally.
The Thomas Love Peacock Society was founded in Hobart, Tasmania, in 1996. The web site—designed and edited by Informal—has been growing in size and content steadily since its inception in October,1998.
The Society's first conference on Peacock was held in Hobart, Tasmania, from the 4th to the 7th of July, 2002.
The Society's second conference will be held sometime in 2010 in Britain or (if willing partners cannot be found therein) in Australia. Papers on all aspects of Peacock's works are sought.
Fine editions of many of Peacock's work are being planned. The TLP society will also publish (in book form) several selections of essays beginning in 2008.
