Read full description of the books Poemes Michel Ange:

[in italiano sotto]

In The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock we read that

"in the room the women come and go
talking of Michelangelo".

I don't think they were talking of his poetry, though. The extraordinary fortune of Michelangelo's art was already great during his life, when he was called 'Divine' (he was the only living artist in Vasari's Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects...) and it never faded. His poetry, instead, is less known and valued. But - as if all the rest wasn't enough - he was also a great poet.
An exemple?
In a sonnet, he describes the impossible condition of the believer, who wishes to desire what can't desire, to be who cannot be. You find the poem below, in the Italian original, but the first two lines say something like this (and I think is already enough...):

I wish I'd want, o Lord, what I don't want:
between heart and fire a veil of ice is hidden







L'artista divino è anche (non bastava ancora!) uno dei più grandi poeti del Cinquecento: al tempo stesso concreto, materico, scultoreo e neoplatonico anelante alla liberazione dal peso della carne e del tempo.
L'edizione negli Oscar Mondadori è molto ben curata e commentata da Matteo Residori. Bello anche il saggio introduttivo di Mario Baratto, che risale al 1984.

Un esempio? Ecco una descrizione dei contrasti di volontà del credente, e della tesa, impossibile posizione che ne deriva:

Vorrei voler, Signor, quel ch’io non voglio:
tra ’l foco e ’l cor di ghiaccia un vel s’asconde
che ’l foco ammorza, onde non corrisponde
la penna all’opre, e fa bugiardo ’l foglio.

I’ t’amo con la lingua e poi mi doglio
ch’amor non giunge al cor; né so ben onde
apra l’uscio alla grazia che s’infonde
nel cor, che scacci ogni spietato orgoglio.

Squarcia ’l vel tu, Signor, rompi quel muro
che con la suo durezza ne ritarda
il sol della tuo luce, al mondo spenta!

Manda ’l preditto lume a noi venturo,
alla tuo bella sposa, acciò ch’io arda
il cor senz’alcun dubbio, e te sol senta.

Read information about the author

Ebook Poemes Michel Ange read Online! Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer of the High Renaissance who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art. Considered as the greatest living artist in his lifetime, he has since been held as one of the greatest artists of all time. Despite making few forays beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with his fellow Italian Leonardo da Vinci.
