The Diary of Samuel Pepys is a unique literary work. Unlike other diarists of his time, Pepys had no aspirations for publication. This liberated him to paint a frank, uncensored portrait of life in London, England at the time of the Restoration. Throughout the diary, which spans the years 1660 to 1669, Pepys offers his firsthand perspective on major events during the Restoration, including his own role in helping to bring King Charles II back from exile to ascend the throne, as well as his counsel to the government during the Great Plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of 1666. Rising through the ranks due to his hard work and administrative talent, Pepys served as Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and King James II. His influence and reforms at the Admiralty played a key role in the early professionalization of the Royal Navy. This broad eyewitness coverage thus gives The Diary of Samuel Pepys a historic distinction.
