Headlong Hall is a novel written by Thomas Love Peacock and originally published in 1816. It is the first novel by the English writer.

In this satire, we meet a group of people who are invited to a country house called Headlong Hall in Wales.

These guests, each one more eccentric and obsessive, are Mr. Fosters, Mr. Escot, Mr. Jenkins and the Reverend Doctor Gaster. In addition, there they meet other guests and Squire Headlong, who serves as master of ceremonies and provides the group with a series of events and generous dinners.

The guests will discuss the Welsh, Scottish or literary journals among other topics, each offering his or her point of view. All this, with a tone of humor...

"The ambiguous light of a December morning, peeping through the windows of the Holyhead mail, dispelled the soft visions of the four insides, who had slept, or seemed to sleep, through the first seventy miles of the road, with as much comfort as may be supposed consistent with the jolting of the vehicle, and an occasional admonition to remember the coachman, thundered through the open door, accompanied by the gentle breath of Boreas, into the ears of the drowsy traveller..."
