Samuel Pepys is as much a paragon of literature as Chaucer and Shakespeare. His Diary is one of the principal sources for many aspects of the history of its period. In spite of its significance, all previous editions were inadequately edited and suffered from a number of omissions—until Robert Latham and William Matthews went back to the 300-year-old original manuscript and deciphered each passage and phrase, no matter how obscure or indiscreet.The Diary deals with some of the most dramatic events in English history. Pepys witnessed the London Fire, the Great Plague, the Restoration of Charles II, and the Dutch Wars. He was a patron of the arts, having himself composed many delightful songs and participated in the artistic life of London. His flair for gossip and detail reveals a portrait of the times that rivals the most swashbuckling and romantic historical novels. In none of the earlier versions was there a reliable, full text, with commentary and notation with any claim to completeness. This edition, first published in 1970, is the first in which the entire diary is printed with systematic comment. This is the only complete edition available; it is as close to Pepys’s original as possible.

This was a highly entertaining dramatisation of The Diaries of Samuel Pepys. I listened to each episode when it was repeated by the BBC on Radio 4 Extra each day and enjoyed every minute. I will enjoy listening to it again and again in the future. This production is an example of the BBC at its best.

There's not a better diary that's ever been written, in all the history of the recorded word. I don't know how to praise it enough.

Arrived in new condition. Lots of footnotes to aid in reading.

Ever since I found a circa 1950's diary in an old attic rummage sale on a vacation in Maine when I was about 8, I've been fascinated by old diaries. It also helps that I'm fascinated by history in general. So bring together great historical periods (ie the Great Fire of London) with diaries (and such honest ones as this are rare) and you have a classic. The language was a bit challenging at first - but like reading Shakespeare, if you just get used to it, it suddenly seems normal (reading it out loud also helped me get in the 17th century zone). It was interesting to see so much history witnessed by a normal person (albeit one of the upper class). His personal life was quite "colorful" too, which added some flavor to it, too. Definitely worth the effort.

A classic that is too often forgotten.

My second to favorite book. A wonderful look into London life in the 17th century.
Can it all really be true???

Excellent! Read it as a girl; am enjoying it more as an older adult. Fascinating history and personal details from someone who was there.
If you are a history buff, but like to be entertained a little bit this is absolutely wonderful! I read about it in another book of fiction! It was a great discovery for me.
