Synopsis: Compiled as material for Anthony Wood's histories of Oxford University, this text contributes to the oral history of Elizabethan and Stuart England. It parades statesmen, poets, philosopers and scientists, Raleigh and Bacon, Shakespeare and Milton, and Boyle and Halley. They, together with less well known figures, are brought to life in the recorded memories of a vast circle of Aubrey's acquaintance and from the personal knowledge of an author who revelled in the variety of human nature and in the intimate, specific and sometimes scandalous aspects of his subjects' lives.
About the Author:
John Aubrey (1626-1697) was a member of the Royal Society and pioneered the study of archaeology. His writings on antiquities, particularly Stonehenge and Avebury, remain of interest today, but he is best known for his Brief Lives.
John Buchanan-Brown is an editor, biographer, and translator. He edited Aubrey's Three Prose Works.
Michael Hunter is the author of John Aubrey and the Realm of Learning. He is Professor of History at Birkbeck College, University of London.
