Pepys is perhaps the most famous diarist in the English language. His close observations and attention to detail provide a comprehensive view of daily life in seventeenth-century London and include descriptions of the Great Fire of London and the Plague of 1665 ("The plague, blessed be God! Is decreased 400; making the whole this week but 1300 and odd; for which the Lorde be praised!" - 15 November). His diary is considered a critical document of life during the Restoration.
