The Complete Poems of Michelangelo
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThere 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, from the artist's ardent twenties to his anguished and turbulent eighties, to life in English in this unprecedented collection. The result is a tantalizing glimpse into a most fascinating mind.
PortraitJohn Frederick Nims (1913-1999) was the author of eight books of poetry, including "Knowledge of the Evening, " which was nominated for a National Book Award. Among his many translations is "The Poems of Saint John of the Cross," also published by the University of Chicago Press.
