characters ç eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ John Aubrey Read ↠ Brief Lives Penguin Classics ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Gentleman scholar John Aubrey spent his life collecting anecdotes gossip and biographical details about his contemporaries and these biographical sketches are the result a colorful evocation of poets and philosophers including Francis Bacon Georg. Written sometime with anecdotes and probably to amuse himself and friends this book on some 134 personalities excluding himself covering 108 pages by the editor has since been read and admired by those bibliophiles as well as voracious readers since his name s been off and on mentioned together with those familiar vaguely known or unknown menwomen of eminent stature for instance the first 15

statesmanIsaac Barrrow MathematicianFrancis Beaumont and John Fletcher PlaywrightsSir John Birkenhead Poet and journalistSir Henry Blount TravellerEdmund Bonner DivineCaisho Borough naJames Bovey naRichard Boyle 1st Earl of Cork StatesmanThe Hon Robert Boyle Natural philosopher and chemistHenry Briggs MathematicianElizabeth Broughton naAfter each profession we would read hisher synopsis written by the editor then the text itself which might be short or long according to hisher famous or uniue deeds as recorded informed and referenced by the informants or formal publications However some might wonder if the biographies in this book are worth reading at all therefore I d like to tell you on two facts first they span a two century timeframe between the 16th and 17th centuries back cover and two the material used in this edition has been taken from the real thing that is from fifty volumes in the Bodleian Library at Oxford and from sixteen volumes in the libraries of the Wiltshire Archeological and Natural History Society The Royal Society the Corporation of London and the British Museum p 1 I think there are really some illustrious Aubrey scholars who have written their inspiring reviews on this book or hopefully on some biographies from those formidable original volumes kept in the mentioned libraries in England So it s my idea to write something on only three excerpts I ve found originally interesting as followsFirst around half a century ago I sometime heard some people or teachers comment on some friends or students illegible handwriting in terms of its unreadability and mockinglyhumorously said in Thai literally translated This handwriting is like a hen s scratches I thought it s well said to signify something concrete as a Thai sentence but it was my misunderstanding when I read the Edmund Weller biography and came across this one He writes a lamentably poor hand as bad as the scratching of a hen p 361 So that s it The Thai phrase might arguably have mysteriously been translated from this English one by our anonymous Thai scholars who probably happened to have read this and subtly translated and adopted it to comment on such poor handwriting It works and is a kind of informally spoken Thai because we can instantly understand how poor it is Next I found this paragraph on Richard Boyle amazingly and incredibly fascinating something like what you d expect to read in Ripley s Believe It or NotMaster Boyl after Earle of Cork who was then a Widdower came one morning to waite on Sir Jeofry Fenton at that time a great Officer of State in that Kingdome of Ireland who being ingaged in business and not knowing who it was who desired to speake with him a while delayed him access which time he spent pleasantly with his young Daughter in her Nurse s Arms But when Sir Jeoffry came he civilly excused it But Master Boyl replied he had been very well entertayned and spent his time much to his satisfaction in courting his Daughter if he might obtaine the Honour to be accepted for his Son in lawe At which Sir Jeoffry smiling to hear one who had been formerly married move for a Wife carried in Arms and under two years old asked him if would stay for her To which he frankly answered him he would and Sir Jeoffry as generously promised him he should then have his consent And they both kept their words honourably And
