Sir Christopher Wren

Michael St John Parker

ISBN:0-9529619-8-9

The reign of Charles II (1660-85) during which Wren's talent was first recognized and given free rein, was a time in which literature and the arts were valued for their own sake. Many other clever men, whose fields of interest left no areas of learning untouched, were working at the same time as Wren, who was, nevertheless, one of the most versatile, inventive and fertile talents of his age.

This short study of Wren's life and work is a summary of his greatness, but it is also an exploration of the way in which this fascinating genius fitted into the turbulent history of the time.
