Product Description

Review

"[Pepys] was not only Charles II's chief naval administrator, but a keen amateur of learning and an indefatigable enthusiast of politics, music, theater, women, life. He sets down his daily experience with a journalist's eye for detail, something of a novelist's sensitivity and, since he is writing for himself, a delightful frankness."--"Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Robert Latham was Pepys Librarian at Magdalene College, Cambridge. In addition to editing the eleven volumes of The Diary of Samuel Pepys, he was the editor of the acclaimed Shorter Pepys (1985) and A Pepys Anthology (1988), both published by University of California Press. William Matthews was Professor of English at the University of California, Los Angeles. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A great read, very enjoyable; I read a few pages at bed-time. I have read abridged versions and wanted more detail, to see what I was missing and I do think it is worth reading the complete Pepys. However, I do wish they would put the english translation to Pepys's french/spanish passages; don't know why they assume everyone knows french/spanish.........but of course you get the gist of what he is up to!!

Another fascinating installment in the life of Samuel Pepys.From the minor concerns with physical ailments to the headaches of doing business for the benefit of the King and oneself,with occasional detours into marital infidelity-described in French-all aspects of life are there.Best read after the previous edition for the benefit of context and not ideal taken in isolation.
