Thanks to his diary - Samuel Pepys is one of the most interesting
characters in history. His life encompassed happenings of huge
historical and human impact - including the execution of Charles I
and the Great Fire of London. "Voices from the World of Samuel
Pepys" captures the spirit of Restoration London, as it grew to
become a major centre of international commerce and culture. It
provides accounts on all aspects of contemporary life, from the
arts and entertainment to politics and religion. Pepys' diary,
which he kept almost daily from 1659-1669, is the central resource,
but it also includes 'voices' from all levels of society, taken
from a wide variety of contemporaneous sources.
