First Person Singular

First person singular presents history in the words of those who took part in the events they describe or were eyewitnesses to them. It ranges from diaries and letters depicting the details of everyday life and personal experience to more literary sources such as narratives of momentous events and autobiographies. Classic titles such as Aubrey's Brief Lives sit alongside exciting rediscoveries such as The Loss of the Wager, and the range of titles will cover the early middle ages to the twentieth century. No retelling of history by a scholar can match the vividness of these sources, which open a brightly-lit window into the past.
