Henry Purcell (1659-1695) is the greatest of all English composers and a pivotal figure in European musical history. In this rich and colorful biography, Jonathan Keates deftly traces Purcell's life and artistry against the backdrop of the turbulent political, religious, theatrical, and social movements of his time.

Stendhal by Jonathan Keates( Book )

Henri Marie Beyle, author of The Red and the Black and The Charterhouse of Parma, the man we know as Stendhal, ranks with Balzac, Flaubert, Zola, and Baudelaire as a nineteenth-century French immortal. Yet on the night of 22 March, 1842, no one noticed his untimely death in Paris. Jonathan Keates's contagiously readable new biography of this great romantic takes us through his career in Napoleon's armies (he watched Moscow burn in 1812), his many love affairs, his

The siege of Venice by Jonathan Keates( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relates the city's ill-fated attempt in 1848 to resist its Austrian occupiers and declare an independent Venetian republic. The unequal combat lasted for more than a year until starvation, disease and other depredations exhausted the Venetians and their short-lived republic. Keates conveys life inside the besieged Adriatic city in 1848. Food queues, dwindling water supplies and outbreaks of cholera conspired to undermine morale. Fire-watches were kept as Marshal Radetzky pulverised the city with canon, howitzer and mortar. History's first recorded use of aerial bombardments occurred as hot-air balloons dropped explosives. The Venetians showed extraordinary tenacity under fire. "Resisteremo fino all'ultima polenta!" was the general cry - "We'll hold out until the last slice of polenta!" However, on August 24 the saga of human loss and famine came to an end: republican Venice capitulated and became once more a fiefdom of the abhorred Habsburgs
