Historical Letters, Diaries and Journals
selected by Jenny Green
(Pelican Big Books 0582421055)
A fascinating selection of extracts from a range of historical periods. The writers include Samuel Pepys, Charlotte Bronte, Queen Victoria, Roald Dahl and Nelson Mandela while the often neglected black heroine, Mary Seacole, is included as the subject of two other people's writing. Useful for autobiographical writing and for looking at the way writing styles have changed through the years.
