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.
