Michelangelo's Poetry

In me la morte. In te la vita mia.
(In me, death. In you, my life.)


I was thinking about sculpture, which led to thinking about Michelangelo (I actually wept when I looked at his Pietà), which led to his poetry. I still have my Italian textbook from my university days, and I still love his poetry. The line above has always stayed in my memory: His art was his life.
