Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Pepys led a full, varied and voraciously-enjoyed life and clearly took pleasure in setting it all down in plain words. Unlike most frantically busy men, he had remarkable powers of observation."
--Paul Johnson

"The bald truth about oneself, what we are all too timid to admit when we are not too dull to see it, that was what Pepys saw clearly and set down unsparingly."
--Robert Louis Stevenson

"Alexander conquered the world; but Pepys, with a keener, more selfish understanding of life, conquered a world for every sense."
--Charles Whibley

5.0 von 5 Sternen CALLING ALL HISTORY BUFFS... 18. März 2005
Von Lawyeraau
Format:Hörkassette
This is a remarkably entertaining audio book for those who wish to have a birds-eye view of life in seventeenth century London. Samuel Pepys began keeping an extensive diary in 1660, which he religiously kept for nine years. He finally stopped writing it in 1669 due to his failing eyesight. Samuel Pepys personally lived through the restoration of the Crown to Charles Stuart after the fall of Cromwell, the Plague, and the Great Fire of London. So, it is remarkable to be able to hear Samuel Pepys' vibrant, eye witness narrative of these historical events. Read by the great British actor, Kenneth Branagh, whose beautifully nuanced reading of this abridgement is one that the discerning listener will find compelling, the diary of Samuel Pepys is one book that history buffs of the period will surely love.
In his diary, Samuel Pepys recorded not only events that had historical significance but also those day to day details of his own life that shed light upon the way that people actually lived and worked in seventeenth century Restoration London. The diary chronicles all those mundane little details about which life is made. His meetings with friends and colleagues, his desire for social and professional advancement, his treatment of his servants, his spats with his wife, and his brief extra-marital affairs and bawdy romps, all this and more is contained in his diary. In detailing his affairs of the heart, he often used a code which appears to be a combination of English, Spanish, Latin, and possibly French. It was understandable to me, as it would be to anyone with some knowledge of these languages, and, consequently, understandable as to why he would write it in code. He obviously would not want his wife to know what he was up to!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lebendige Geschichte 13. Januar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Das ist ein ausgesprochen spannendes Tagebuch eines hohen Beamten im England des 17. Jh. Von den Lebensumständen der Bewohner Londons vor und zur Zeit der Pest und des Großen Feuers bis zu intimen Frauengeschichten eines Dreißigjährigen mit allen möglichen, auch verheirateten Frauen bekommt der Leser eine unglaublich direkte und authentische Schilderung des Lebens der damaligen Zeit. Das Tagebuch hat Pepys übrigens in einer "Geheimschrift" verfasst, die angeblich erst in den Zwanzigerjahren des vorigen Jahrhunderts entschlüsselt worden sein soll.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Unklare Maßstäbe für die Textauswahl 26. Oktober 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Vorwort ist sehr gut und allein wegen ihm lohnt sich der Kauf des Buchs. Die Textauswahl finde ich seltsam: in meiner alten Reclam-Ausgabe gibt es seitenweise kritische Bemerkungen zu den Verhältnissen am englischen Hof, da ist man in der englischen Ausgabe doch sehr zurückhaltend und das ist schlicht, obwohl das Wort etwas pubertär klingt, doof.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not as advertised 12. August 2009
Von John Isles - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The posted reviews giving this a high rating are NOT OF THIS KINDLE EDITION, but are of the printed Latham-Matthews edition. That is a wonderful edition, but this one is the first, 19th-century bowdlerized version, which in particular glosses over Pepys's entertaining sexeual escapades. A modern reader should wait for something better to come along.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A real inside look at history! 14. Januar 2007
Von K. J. Kloian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
When I started reading the diary, I expected it to be extremely boring and very old fashioned (seeing how it was written in the 1600's) - how wrong I was!!!

Samuel Pepys (pronounced 'peeps') is a human, funny, moody man who has his ups and downs like the rest of us. His narrative during the plague records his concern about neighbors, and his real sorrow when people he knows succumb to it. He also records his experiences during the great fire of London in 1666 and his first mention of it strikes me as entirely human - he says that his maids wake him as they have heard of the fire and as it is not near his doorstep he simply goes back to bed as he's tired. He has arguments with his wife, and has cast a lusty eye upon the kings mistress for years! He also has, what I call 'mini affairs' where he kisses and fondles women quite regularly, (including his own maids) and seems to have no guilt about this whatsoever. Most mornings he 'drinks' his breakfast and at one point is outraged that his new wig is teeming with nits! An historical and very human read. Makes me realise that after 450 years we are all no different at all........

1.0 von 5 Sternen not pleased 19. Januar 2009
Von E. Dinwiddie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is said to be "The Diary of Samuel Pepys" and true it is...however it is only part 2 of a 10 part diary but you wouldnt know that unless you bought it and saw that the book starts with the end of a sentence from the previous volume. very sad.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Peep Show 26. August 2010
Von R. J. Marsella - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Reading Samuel Pepys diary is an extraordinary experience because it blends the intimate personal details of this very public man of the 17th century with some of the most dramatic moments in London history. Pepys moves back and forth in successive daily entries between recording his marital ups and downs , his personal struggles with temptations of the flesh and career successes and the tumultuous events that he witnessed first hand. His descriptions of the Plague of 1665 and the Great London fire of 1666 are unequaled. As an influential minister in the Royal Navy he had access to and was acquainted with much of the aristocracy in the England of his day and had direct knowledge and access to King Charles II during the restoration years. This edition of his diary is abridged and contains the years 1660 thru 1669. From the coronation and return to the monarchy through the Dutch-English war Pepys' perpective is enlightening and entertaining. I can't think of another book that I've read that places the reader in such intimate contact with a time and place so far removed. By the time you are finished with this you will have learned much and become acquainted with a pretty interesting and engaging character in Mr. Pepys. Highly recommended to anyone interested in this period and would enjoy an insiders view of restoration London.

1.0 von 5 Sternen No publisher, no editor, What is this exactly? 12. Oktober 2012
Von E. Nix - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I ordered this diary because I am teaching history to undergraduates. When it arrived I was surprised that the edition had no publisher, no editor, did not contain the complete diary and had no explanation of why edits were made. The book is surprisingly large and formatted unprofessionally. I returned it to Amazon. I am certain there are better editions out there, and I would be embarrassed to have this one on my shelf.
