The Diary of Samuel Pepys, 1668

The Diary of Samuel Pepys, 1668
By Samuel Peps
 
  What’s the main part of this diary? His dishonor behavior toward the maid! Such a scandal!!!! But, to our surprise, he really gave us the detail of everything. Yes, EVERYTHING. How he flirted with the maid and how he managed to find her after his wife sent her away. To be honest, none of us will write in such a detail, especially for such thing. But Samuel Peps did, and according to our discussion, it’s because it’s a way for him as atone for his dishonor behaviors. And whether his diary was all true words or not, we can’t deny that this is an unusual way for as to read, and an interesting topic for us to discuss “diary.” Why he started his diary in this way? To give us the truth? A way to express his feeling? Nonetheless, Pepy’s diary might be one of the most…direct diary I’ve ever seen.
