The major part of Lucy Hutchinson's Life of her husband covers the period from the outbreak of the Civil War in 1642 when Hutchinson held Nottingham Castle and Town for parliament, until the day when he added his signature to the death warrant of Charles I in 1649. Lucy Hutchinson's account of the Civil War as it was fought in and around Nottingham forces upon the reader the realization of what life is like when neighbours take up arms against each other and fight it out to the death. The events (and the issues on which they turned) may now seem remote, but the men and women who were concerned in them remain remarkably alive and unmistakably English. Mrs. Hutchinson's sympathetic portrait of her husband is a remarkable revelation of the Puritan character: Colonel Hutchinson was never easy to get on with, but was invariably honourable, and, in a grim way, ultimately endearing. She herself emerges as a woman of strong character and high intellectual ability, never suffering fools gladly, and often subjecting the men with whom her husband came in contact to devastating satirical analysis. The present text reproduces the original manuscript complete for the first time; and includes some 9, 000 words never printed before. It is edited and introduced by James Sutherland, Emeritus Professor of English Literature, University of London.
