The Diary of Samuel Pepys, 1666

The Diary of Samuel Pepys, 1666
By Samuel Peps

  This…is going to be a short review…since I only read a few pages about this. The main part I read in 1666’s diary is about the great fire in London, how Pepys described it all. It’s an interesting thing, since his tone for diary is definitely different from our ages. “Dear Diary…” No, his diary is more like a list, how everything happened. A special note about this 1666 diary is that he didn’t really mentioned how the fire affected the people, rather he wrote the dove flew away from the fire in detail. However, personally, I think it somehow emphasis how terrible the fire is. From the movement of a tiny animal, how they left in a rush. That I think is a funny part of Samuel Pepys diary. He was not like other authors who purposely left his diary to be seen, but he wrote them down with his original idea about them.
