John Aubrey's racy portraits of the great figures of 17th-century England stand alongside Pepys's diary as a vivid evocation of the period. Aubrey was born in 1626, the son of a Wiltshire squire; at the age of 26 he inherited a family estate encumbered with debt, and finally went bankrupt in the 1670s. From then on he led a sociable, rootless existence at the houses of friends - from Oxford and the Middle Temple -pursuing the antiquarian studies which had always obsessed him. At his death in 1697 he left a mass of notes and manuscripts, among them the material for Brief Lives. He never managed to put even a single life into logical order; all we have are the raw materials, scribbled down -'tumultuously as they occurredto my thoughts'. With this full, modern English edition, which reproduces Aubrey's words as closely as possible, Richard Barber introduces us to Aubrey and his world, tells how the Livescame into being and enables many new readers to enjoy this eccentric masterpiece.… (mere)

It's a laugh a minute the way John Aubrey puts down his musings on the knobs of Restoration England. Great Biography of Aubrey himself by Oliver Dick to introduce the collection.
  ivanfranko | May 11, 2019 |
This is a wonderful collection of gossip about Englishmen, some of them great from Elizabethan times to the Restoration of 1660. Many colourful details from here have gone on to enlighten more involved biographies. The Editor did a very good job, and the book is the better for it, I have been told.
The original first partially saw print in the early 1700's. ( )

Voici un livre étonnant donnant un éclairage particulier sur les personnages populaires de la première moitié du 17ème siècle anglais. John Aubrey a réalisé ces "petites vies" dans le but de garder une trace de ses contemporains. Toutes les notes et écrits à ce sujet n'étaient pas destinés à être publiés et c'est à titre posthume que ces petites miniatures ont connu la consécration. John Aubrey a le don de la concision et le lecteur connaît les principaux traits de caractères de chaque personnage en quelques lignes. C'est d'ailleurs là où Aubrey est le plus efficace car lorsqu'il commence à être plus détaillé, le texte devient pompeux et entre dans un côté "officiel".

Ce livre ne peut se lire comme un roman. Voyons cela comme une série de photographies d'une époque révolue, album d'images que l'on tourne pour revoir un portrait de famille.

John Aubrey a inspiré d'autres écrivains, en particulier Marcel Schwob, qui a écrit "vies imaginaires" sur ce modèle. ( )

I have, in all honesty, lost track of the number of times I have returned to this gem of a book since I first read it in the 1960s. There is something so very modern about Aubrey's way of portraying his subjects that never pales. He brings to life the people and life of the 16th and 17th centuries with personal recollections and trivia that illuminate and educate. Vivid, frank and sometimes bawdy Aubrey is always entertaining and ever enlightening.

The foreword by Oilver Lawson Dick is a none too brief life of Aubrey himself but is in its own way fascinating.

A must read if only for the lives of Shakespeare and Marvell ( )
