John Aubrey

Aubrey's Brief Lives


John Aubrey was a modest man, a self-styled antiquarian and the man who invented modern biography. His `lives' of the prominent figures of his generation and the Elizabethan era, including Shakespeare, Milton and Sir Walter Raleigh, have been plundered by historians for centuries for their frankness and fascinating detail. Collected here are all of Aubrey's biographical writings, a series of unforgettable portraits of the characters of his day, still more alive and kicking than in any conventional work of history.
