5.0 étoiles sur 5 Making History Exciting 30 septembre 2014

What makes this edition special is that its the only one I know of that has photos of most of Michaelangelo's artwork that are described in the book.
This edition is a nice, full hefty book, and comes in a thin cardboard box-cover. Nice esp for people who love the book. Since it's 1963 it won't be sleek & new, but I covered mine in a nice heavy plastic and that makes it sleek.
My complaint is with the reproductions being occasionally not as clear as they could be- some of the black-and-whites are too dark.
But there is no other edition I know of that has all the pictures like this one.

The title makes it sound like it's going to be sentimental- but instead it's a very large, moving biography of Michelangelo, told like an exciting story. When you write a biography like a story, so much has to be "filled in" by the author, since we participate in Michelangelo's daily life, conversations and thoughts. So I guess you could call it fictionalized-- but it really seems to represent the spirit of the man. After you read this you will be so "high" on Michelangelo you will go look up every statue!

The author gives his opinions- his way of understanding the statues is brilliant, you will never see these ideas anywhere else. It really made me understand the man and his statues well beyond simple admiration.

This is one of the most interesting books I've ever read, especially the exciting chapter on how he carved the David, "The Giant"- imagine a description of carving a statue being told like an adventure! He brings his intelligent analysis and emotions to the scene and it's is one of the most fascinating things I've ever read.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Masterpiece of a Book 26 juillet 2016

I originally purchased this book out of curiosity. I wanted to learn about and study a genius' life. A lover of art and design, I was naturally drawn to Michelangelo. After a substantial research on the best biographies based on his life and work, I was more than convinced that this book was it. And it didn't disappoint me at all!

I had never been to Italy when I started reading. A few months later, my sister and I planned a weekend in Europe, and partly because of this book, I convinced my sister we had to spend a weekend in Rome. Shortly after, I spent a week in Florence, and it was the very first time I felt like an informed tourist, knowing what I was marveling at.

The Agony and the Ecstasy is a novel-like biography of Michelangelo intertwined with historical accounts and facts about his life. It is written in such a way you won't want to put the book down. I felt like I lived inside Michelangelo's head; like I really got to know his person, simultaneously studying art and design history. It's set during the Italian Renaissance, and Michelangelo was a central figure of that glorious period. The book is filled with information. So far, it is the most substantial book I've read, and it's the first time I've taken my time reviewing a book.

The book is by no means an easy read; It took me weeks to finish. In fact, when I first bought it, I had to set it aside before I made it halfway, and I had to re-read it from the start. As I read the last pages, my heart ached as Michelangelo was getting weaker and weaker. It was quite an experience feeling like I lived side by side such a genius. All the masterpieces he forged during his life—just wow!

This book has sparked a deeper interest in me for art and design, and now for a newfound love: sculpture.
Thank you, Irving Stone, for this masterpiece of a book. ''♥︎

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best books I've ever read 2 mai 2013

This book depicts one of the most fascinating eras in human history and makes us feel as if we are there.
All that unique period of the Reneaissance,- the glorious time of "Rebirth",- about 500 years ago, just when Columbus discovered America,- reviving the classical visual arts of ancient Greece and Rome,- with its most outstanding artists as well as highest-ranked religious persons,- popes, monks, rebels, and also military leaders and kings,- is painted on a vast canvas in front of the flabbergasted reader, providing a panorama of southern Europe at that time,- teaching him also about the daily life in Italy, its special foods, its dresses, its professions, its customs, its views, its architecture, its proverbs.
The English is classical yet clear and flowing.
The characters come alive through witty descriptions, the author also provides many facts about the beaux arts,- about marble, frescoes, painting, enlarging, perspectives, stone-cutting, sculpting,- all that as if by the way, without imposing and without becoming too scholarly, though he'd researched those subjects for years.
One discovers the secret religious, artisctic and psychological codes that lie behind each masterpiece, seeing them with refreshed opened eyes even after having known them for years from albums and classes.
The presumptuous tiitle is correct, indeed, emphasizing the agony but mostly the ecstasy of the artist, filling such lofty words with true meaning, connecting earth and heaven, being highly instructive yet colorful, dramatic, balanced.
And above all towers the wonderful man, Michelangelo, whose struggles become exemplary.
By depicting the masterpiseces of this creator of the most famous sculptures in the world,- the giant "David", the radiating "Moses", the heart-rending "Pieta",- the author Irving Stone (Stone!- What a fortunate "coincidence"!) created his own great masterpiece, touching the vary origins of life,- the rock from which we cut out our civilization,- our cities and houses,- with raw passion, tender love, and eternal faith.
I'd already read the book once, but had to purchase it so I could have it at home with me in my possession, and read it again and again, enjoying every moment. Highly recommanded, from every aspect!!!! Also a great gift for everyone who strives to pave his own individual way in life notwithstanding its dangers and disappoinmtments.

How did I not read this incredible book years ago? I have no idea, frankly, but am thrilled to have had it recommended to me after a recent visit to Europe and being lucky enough to view firsthand some of Michelangelo's works. This book is written so beautifully and it is hard to imagine how much detailed research had to be done in order for Mr. Stone to describe so fully and vividly the process of creating such masterpieces and the severe impediments of all kinds that existed for Michelangelo. I feel that this is just a giant of a book in every way and I found it hard to put down. Truly, one of the masterpieces of writing for all time. I am sorry to have finished it. Stunningly beautiful book......

Here is a timeless masterpiece , written so beautifully about the great genius of Michaelangelo. Having read many years ago, I am traveling to Rome and wanted to freshen my memory. HOWEVER the size of this paperback is so very small , reading in this format is difficult and uncomfortable. I do not recommend this particular publication. Really disappointed.
