This chapter examines the theme of love in Mervyn Peake's work. The word love is used to express our feeling for our place of birth; our home and our country; our favourite foods, colours, sensations, and perceptions, books, music, pictures, and other cultural artefacts; what we feel for animals, children, parents, and siblings; for close friends and a potential life partner, for a spouse, for God, and, so we are told, what He feels for us. Peake writes about almost all of them, in one way or another.
