Beethoven : the universal composer by Edmund Morris ( Book )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 1,528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Beethoven was a genius so universal that his popularity, extraordinary even during his lifetime, has never ceased to grow. It now encircles the globe: Beethoven's most famous works are as beloved in Beijing as they are in Boston. Biographer Morris brings the composer to life as a man of astonishing complexity and overpowering intelligence. A gigantic, compulsively creative personality unable to tolerate constraints, he was not so much a social rebel as an astute manipulator of powerful and privileged aristocrats, at a time when their world was threatened by the rise of Napoleon. Struggling against progressive, incurable deafness (which he desperately tried to keep secret), he nonetheless produced towering masterpieces. Morris illuminates Beethoven's life, including his interactions with the women he privately lusted for but held at bay, and his work, whose grandeur and beauty were conceived "on the other side of silence."--Publisher description

Bashful with women and a stranger to romance, Beethoven was an abrasive, egotistical, and unsightly little man. Yet he was also a musical genius whose greatest works flowed from his deepest woes.

The rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris ( Recording )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the story of seven men--a naturalist, a writer, a lover, a hunter, a cowboy, a soldier, and a politician--who "merged" at the age of forty-two to become the youngest American president in history. Rarely has any public figure exercised such a charismatic hold on the American people. During the years covered by this book (1858-1901), Roosevelt built himself up from a frail, asthmatic boy to full-blooded manhood. He had a youthful romance as lyrical--as tragic--as any in Victorian fiction. He chased thieves across the Badlands with a copy of Tolstoy in one hand and a Winchester rifle in the other
