John Evelyn was an English writer, gardener and diarist

John Evelyn was an English writer, gardener and diarist. Evelyn's diaries or Memoirs are largely contemporaneous with those of the other noted diarist of the time, Samuel Pepys, and cast considerable light on the art, culture and politics of the time (he witnessed the deaths of Charles I and Oliver Cromwell, the last Great Plague of London, and the Great Fire of London in 1666). Over the years, John Evelyn was an English writer, gardener and diarist.

John Evelyn, English country gentleman, author of some 30 books on the fine arts, forestry, and religious topics. His Diary, begun when he was 11 years old and first published in 1818 (ed. . de Beer, 6 vo. 1955), was written for himself alone but with relatively little about himself in it. His Diary, kept all his life, is considered an invaluable source of information on the social, cultural, religious, and political life of 17th-century England. It ranges from bald memoranda to elaborate set pieces.

Personal experiences bring the past closer to us.. Historians and novelists depend on and build on them for their books.. It's more fun for me when I can get the details from the Horse's mouth, I had read too many literary allusions to John Evelyn Diaries not to finally give in to ordering his Diary. Unfortunately this was his last one, so the many footnotes that referred to earlier Diary incidents were lost on me, I knew of course the historical background of King Charles II and the Restoration period and some of the names associated with his Court, but too many of the footnotes were above my radar. Evelyn is best for factual reporting, for he is too upright in character to allow himself to be considered gossipy or amusing.

This novel is a very enjoyable read. It definitely reflects the sensibilities of the mid 20th century in its attitudes towards relationships between women and men, but if you can look past that, it's a fun read. I laughed out loud many, many times.

Evelyn is very different from Pepys, whom he knew. Unlike Pepys, Evelyn was a strait-laced fellow, so we get no juicy stories of his amours. He hardly speaks of his wife and consequently never mentions any arguments they might have had. He tells few personal anecdotes. He also has little to say about the great plague year or the great fire of London. Pepys gives a lot more detail on these subjects.
What he does deal with rather extensively are the meetings of the Royal Society, of which he was a member. It was hard for me to get excited about these. Nevertheless, it is good to have this book available.
