CONSTANT DELIGHTS Summary

CONSTANT DELIGHTS by Graham Hopkins

Constant Delights looks - from a rather jaunty angle - at one of the most remarkable and fashionable periods in English history. Peopled with names such as Milton, Pepys, Dryden, Halley, Purcell, Bunyan, Wren, Lely and Kneller, the reign of Charles II (1660-85) was a time of innovation, creativity and beauty. It also had more than its fair share of debauchery - gambling, drinking, sex and violence, to be precise. That's where Constant Delights picks up the story. Constant Delights reports in a lively and readable way on the outrageous characters whose deeds filled newsletters and satires, and who fuelled dinner table and satire talk. Soundly researched, it exposes the fops, the rakes, the rogues, the whores, the slatterns, the bitches. And that's just the men.
