Samuel Pepys's meticulous chronicles of life in 17th-century England are an exacting record of a unique historical era. Pepys lived through one of the most colorful periods of British history. He witnessed - and recorded detailed accounts of - the execution of Charles I, a civil war, the Restoration, a plague, and the Great Fire of London. His entries also record the minutiae of everyday life - scandals, intrigues, infidelities and vulgarities - presenting a comprehensive portrait of a fascinating era.
The Diary of Samuel Pepys is the enduring legacy of a British parliamentarian and naval administrator whose journal offers startling firsthand glimpses into the most dramatic events in 17th-century England.
Born in 1633, Pepys was a witness to many of England’s historical traumas: the Great Plague, the Second Dutch War, and the Great Fire of London. Pepys writes about these events with great detail, but he also writes with simple elegance about everyday delights like drinking wine and the pleasures of the opposite sex.
Using a British accent, Alexander Spencer intones Pepys words with an introspective tone.
