Nightmare Abbey is a novel written by Thomas Love Peacock and first published in 1818. The text mocks the literary trends of the time.

Christopher Glowry is the owner of an ancient abbey where he offers his hospitality to visitors who hold endless and intense debates there. Among these guests are many famous people of Peackok's time, such as the writers Samuel Taylor Coleride and Lord Byron.

Meanwhile, Mr. Glowry's son isolates himself in a room reading philosophy and German tragedies. After a love affair that ended badly, he even considers committing suicide. However, he ends up being convinced to continue his father's misanthropy.

Through the use of satire and using comic language at times, this play criticizes the main works of British romanticism.
