Written In History by Montefior, Simo Sebag



ISBN: 9781474609197 Category: Tags: , , ,


INCLUDES NEW MATERIAL WRITTEN IN HISTORY celebrates the great letters of world history creative culture and personal life. Acclaimed historian Simon Sebag Montefiore selects over one hundred letters from ancient times to the twenty-first century: some are noble and inspiring some despicable and unsettling; some are exquisite works of literature others brutal coarse and frankly outrageous; many are erotic others heartbreaking. The writers vary from Elizabeth I Rameses the Great and Leonard Cohen to Emmeline Pankhurst Mandela Stalin Michelangelo Suleiman the Magnificent and unknown people in extraordinary circumstances – from love letters to calls for liberation declarations of war to reflections on death. In the colourful accessible style of a master storyteller Montefiore shows why these letters are essential reading: how they enlighten our past enrich the way we live now – and illuminate tomorrow.
