And yes, I learned all sorts of things about Rome, history, Popes, art, Michelangelo, etc. Books by Irving Stone. It has many great ideas on what counts as a classic. It also uses fantastic metaphors and you really get a feel …more I personally wouldn’t call it that, but it is epic in the sense that it goes into detail.

This aspect adds depth and authenticity to the narration together with the rich details of the day to day life of the characters.

Books by Irving Stone. Even so, Stone’s bibliography is primarily made up of books published in the nineteenth century, which seems to me to be a direct refusal of any real understanding of Michelangelo, ignoring important biographical information revealed about Michelangelo during the first half of the twentieth century such as the location of his childhood home and instead selecting certain outdated facts which create a more easily understood narrative.

Major life events death of his best friend! However, the style of writing, step by step descriptions, is not to my liking. Are o cadenta usor greoaie, foarte descriptiva, meticuloasa, dar care captiveaza.

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. The few times the characters deviate from their expected path, e.

I can postulate about the publishing industry’s negative effects on our culture’s self-perception until the cows come home, but the reason I picked this book up is because I cannot remove myself from pop culture.

You do have to treat it more as fiction it won an award for a fiction book, not as a non-fiction book so everything is to be taken with a grain of salt.

I read only a couple of sentences and then I had to stop, run to the toilet to throw up. Extza people, who believed in Christ, prayed to Mary, idolized their Saints for their suffering and sacrifice on behalf of Christianity, had so little restraint.
