Michelangelo studied and wrote poetry throughout his life, and his finest literary efforts are allied with the masterwoks of his visual art, and this translation captures the pathos, complexity, and ardor of both Michelangelo's language and his poetic temperament. The text gives a glimpse into one of the most fascinating minds in the history of art, as Michelangelo laboured in the Sistine Chapel he composed a series of passionate love sonnets and while struggling, near the end of his life, to complete his final "Pieta" he worked at religious poems anguished in their fervour.About the Author:

Descripción University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1998. Paperback. Estado de conservación: NEW. 185 pp. [23 cm] New. Paperback. Black wraps with a sculpture on the cover. From the back cover:There is no artist more celebrated than Michelangelo. Yet the magnificence of his achievements as a visual artist often overshadow his devotion to poetry. Michelangelo used poetry to express what was too personal to display in sculpture or painting. John Frederick Nims has brought the entire body of Michelangelo's verse to life in English, from the artist's ardent twenties to his anguished and turbulent eighties. The result is a tantalizing glimpse into a most fascinating mind. Nº de ref. de la librería 30089
