An antidote to the theory that history is about the biographies of great men, this book explores past lives lived on the margins. Distinguished poet and former Oxford Professor of Poetry James Fenton resurrects the hidden world of out-of-the-way individuals - from pirates to priests -whose lives were chronicled in biographical collections dating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries but were then forgotten.
