New 6x9 inch paperback edition. Regarded as one of the most colorful autobiographies ever written (and also one of the first autobiographies written), the chronicle of Renaissance artist Benvenuto Cellini's life is an epic tale of exaggerated proportions. Cellini's loves, hatreds, passions, delights, brawls and battles, along with extraordinary events, and even supernatural phenomena, are narrated in an energetic, direct, and often racy style. Completed in 1563, Cellini's autobiography is also historically important for its firsthand account of daily life in Renaissance Italy. This 1887 translation, by noted Renaissance scholar John Addington Symonds, has been the most popular English language version for over a century.

Poetry. "Daly perfectly captures the voice of a street-tough artist and courtier, a sculptor of heavy objects regularly on the lam. He meanwhile delivers an indelible landscape of Renaissance Italy and France�the courts, the palaces and the woodlands where goatish men roam. Benvenuto Cellini, the mannerist genius, the soldier and singer of vibrant motets, moves through these scenes in triumph and despair. Daly gives us the story as he receives it personally from Cellini."�Rick Mullin

"Thus spoke Pope Paul III on learning that Cellini had murdered a fellow artist, so great was Cellini's reputation in Renaissance Italy. A renowned sculptor and goldsmith, whose works include the famous salt-cellar made for the King of France, and the statue of Perseus with the head of the Medusa, Cellini's life was as vivid and enthralling as his creations.
