Mervyn Peake, 1911-1968
Exhibitions, radio broadcasts, television programmes, an international conference, domestic and foreign editions of his novels, children's stories and magazine and newspaper articles, all the above have happened this year. Without the help of the dedicated and determined, unflinching and assiduous support of Alison Eldred, much of the above might not have happened. Together, we have promoted the work of a man whose centenary we celebrate today. So let's raise our metaphorical glasses and shout, long live Titus, long live art, and long live Mervyn Peake!
