Summary
"'That Peacock is a classic', declared the scholar and editor R. W. Chapman in 1924, 'now needs no proof; he has passed his century, and his reputation grows'. Such a judgement might have appeared sanguine even in the year in which The Works of Thomas Love Peacock, edited by H. F. B. Brett-Smith and C. E. Jones (1924-34), also known as The Halliford Edition, began to be published. During the early 1920s, Oxford University Press steadfastly resisted proposals for works by and about Peacock. But Chapman--learned, urbane Secretary to Delegates of the Press from 1920 to 1942--was eager to see the novels back in print. He remarked in his Introduction to the World's Classics texts of The Misfortunes of Elphin and Crotchet Castle that the 'experiment' of publishing them, shortly after the initial five volumes of his ground-breaking edition of Jane Austen (1923) had appeared, might transform Peacock into a 'popular classic'"--
