Tutor: John Vigar

Take a journey through Britain from the 16th century in the company of famous and little known diarists from the comfort of your armchair. A look at 400 years of writing a diary. Why have people put pen to paper? Was it for their own personal use or to create a record to be read by others? From national figures like Samuel Pepys, Queen Victoria and James Lees-Milne to unknown individuals we study what they decided to record – their holidays, work experiences, personal relationships and secrets. Expect some adult content as we look into the secret world of private writing! This course includes sessions looking at original manuscripts from the tutor's own collection.
