About this title:
Synopsis:
The 1660s represent a turning point in English history, and for the main events - the Restoration, the Dutch War, the Great Plague, the Fire of London - Pepys provides a definitive eyewitness account. Along with lively descriptions of his socializing, his amorous entanglements, his theater-going & music-making. Unequaled for its frankness, high spirits & sharp observations, the diary is both a literary masterpiece & a marvelous portrait of 17th-century life.

About the Author:
Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) achieved fame as a naval administrator & a friend & colleague of the powerful & learned. For nearly 10 years he kept a private diary in which he recorded life in Restoration London. Robert Latham edited the 11 volume edition of Pepys diary

From AudioFile:
Pepys (pronounced PEEPS) kept a diary in cipher from 1660 to 1669, when he was working himself up the ladder of London officialdom. His accounts of the Plague and the Great London Fire are fascinating. The diary reveals him as vigorous, earthy, amusing, diligent, and keenly observant. Those interested in understanding the England of this tumultuous period could do no better than to consult Pepys (and Defoe's A JOURNAL OF THE PLAGUE YEAR). Lacking notes, this brief selection is of use mostly to students trying to make sense of Pepys's abbreviated style and antiquated diction. For such a task, the celebrated actor-director Kenneth Branagh is very helpful. He admirably conveys the thrust of the entries and the personality of the diarist. Much of the underlying emotional content is missing, however. Y.R. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
