THE LONDON COURSE /SAMUEL PEPYS DIARY AND THE LIFE AND TIMES OF RESTORATION LONDON

The period of Samuel Pepys’ Diary, 1660 to 1669, is one of the most dramatic in London’s life: the restoration of the monarchy, the Plague, the Fire, the return of the new age of theatre as well as the development of new scientific ideas. The Diary is a unique record of the time by one man’s intimate reaction to these great events and also the candid and detailed account of his own personal life of domesticity and everyday occasions.


In this lecture we ask why do people write diaries? And why were the 1660s the scene for such an autobiography as Samuel Pepys uniquely commemorates? The Restoration Age was a new stimulus to an upwardly mobile personality, who found the London scene at every level an environment for superb self-expression.
