Brazen Gifts for Gold


Brazen Gifts for Gold: Poems of Platonic Love by Michelangelo, by Dean Kyte

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) was not merely the preëminent sculptor, painter and architect of the Renaissance, he was also a poet, praised for his rugged colloquial verse style which echoes the rough-hewn quality of his sculptures.

In this beautiful collection of Platonic love poems, Dean Kyte surmounts the almost insurmountable challenges of rendering Michelangelo’s titanic thoughts in clear, concise English.

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.
