Sobre o livro
In these twelve beautiful Platonic love poems, Dean Kyte surmounts the almost insurmountable challenges of rendering Michelangelo’s titanic thoughts in clear, concise English.
Each translation is new, original and exclusive to this volume. The collection is prefaced with an introduction providing English readers with valuable historical background and context to the poems, as well as Dean Kyte’s sensitive interpretation and analysis of Michelangelo’s sonnets and their rôle in his artistic œuvre.
Lofty, majestic, and intensely moving, these poems strike the ear with the same awe-inspiring force that Michelangelo’s sculptures and paintings strike the eye—as the work of a divinely gifted artist and passionate human being.
An exclusive gift for the artist in your life, the book’s convenient pocket size makes this small volume an elegant companion in the studio or in nature, full of inspirational imagery and meditative quotes. “Brazen Gifts for Gold” is the perfect introduction to the fascinating inner life of one of the world’s most admired visual artists.
