(p.109) 5 Love
The Voice of the Heart
Liverpool University Press

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.

Keywords:   love, feelings, Mervyn Peake
