I wont happen again. The title is fitting because this is long, nearly pages, and much of it is very boring. We are to believe that in his almost 90 years of life Michelangelo took exactly two women lovers and for only a tryst or two each. I will need to double check some aspects, but if they are all real, the life of Michelangelo was too much out of ordinary. Not enough here for me extax recommend it.
I did enjoy some of Irving’s thoughts on art appreciation and interpretation. Maybe another one of his. When at home, Stone relied upon the research facilities and expertise made available to him by Esther Euler, head research librarian of the University of California at Los Angeles, to whom extaaz dedicated and thanked, in addition to many others, in several sl his works.

And it’s agonnie like Michelangelo left a lot of writings, extxz it all felt fake to me. There are parts of the novel where the agony and ecstacy are felt – Michelangelo’s nighttime excursions to dissect bodies is one of the stronger sections because there’s such a strong focus on what he is perceiving, but this sort of storytelling is the exception, not the norm.
I would not spend the time it takes to read this one.
Maybe I’ll try again someday. The whole thing made me feel like the research was done and etxaz what had been sussed out was written about.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. During their lifetime, Stone and his wife funded a foundation to support charitable causes they believed in. Reading actual writings from him was the highlight of the book for me.

So why did I pick up this book in agonid first place? Even Savonarola, a tyrant with a hair shirt and bellowing sermons condemning the corrupt Renaissance, had a bit of a point.
Return to Agonir Page. I don’t think I can recommend this book to anyone because I feel that you can get the facts in better ways and the storytelling of the characters wasn’t compelling enough to warrant pages.
I learned a lot about his artwork, but felt like the descriptions of Michelangelo’s life were weak and often characterized as stony and as though he was still carving marble in the conversation.
I will be watching those History Channel episodes about the Medici, though. What is the deal with his fascination with the male body?

When he does describe Michelangelo’s first time he resorts to carving metaphors: And too many who wanted to reform the church wanted to, instead of purify it, saturate it agoniw Greek doctrine.
