    Michelangelo never traveled to Constantinople, but author and scholar Mathias nard imagines that he did in the richly detailed novella Tell Them of Battles, Kings, and Elephants nard draws on the historically verified premise that Michelangelo was invited in 1506 to Constantinople by the Sultan Bayezid II, who wished to commission the design for a bridge over the Golden Horn, having already rejected a design proposed by Leonardo da Vinci Wishing to surpass his elder and seduced by promises

    3.5 This historical novel presents East and West as equal, equivalent, and with at least as many similarities as differences for, as anyone who s encountered the Ottomans on an Early Modern Europe curriculum will know, that s pretty much how it was in the 16th century, before the Industrial Revolution, European colonialism and petropolitics It s a valuable perspective to show 21st century readers, but if you ve heard it plenty of times before since A Levels in the 1990s in my case , its pr 3.5 Th

    This probably deservesthan the 3 star rating I have given it I came to view this as a quaint picturesque type endeavour,artistic feeling than plot Open any page and you will be well rewarded with some elegant and delicate prose, some lovely impression of 16th century Constantinople and the workings of Michelangelo but and here I lower my voice to a whisper it was just a teensy weensy bit dull It was certainly a nice palate cleanser betweensubstantial novels.

    I have been hearing great things about nard for some time, but had never read him, and I chose to start with this one mostly because it is a short one I found it an enjoyable and interesting book, which blends historical fact and fiction.The plot has some elements of truth, but most of it is fictional in 1506 Michelangelo was invited to design a bridge over the Golden Horn for the Sultan, after a previous design by Leonardo da Vinci was rejected, but the project never came to fruition and th I have bee

    If I hadn t read some articles in the past such as Bridging the gap the east west divide in art , I d have entirely believed the central story of Mathias Enard s new novel It s true that Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were invited by Turkish rulers in Constantinople to design a bridge over the Golden Horn, but neither ever journeyed to this Eastern superpower However, Tell Them of Battles, Kings and Elephants imagines Michelangelo travelling to work for the sultan in the summer of 15 If I hadn t read

    This short novella there is a LOT of white space in these 144 pages can and probably SHOULD be read in a single sitting the fact that due to other obligations I had to spread it over 3 days undoubtedly weakened its effect, but it remains an intriguing and powerful what if derived from scattered historical artifacts.

    Beautifully written possible history of Michelangelo visiting the city of Constantinople in 1503 to design a bridge for the Sultan This story is pulled together from scant documents found in Ottoman archives regarding sketches Michelangelo drew of a bridge, which was never built I loved getting to know Michelangelo in all of his stinky ness and personal and professional insecurities.

    Beauty comes from abandoning the refuge of the old forms for the uncertainty of the present.This is an exercise, a bagatelle, a longing glance at the history of art perhaps a teleology of East and West The last point is dubious, worse, it is a distraction During the early 16C Michelangelo was invited to Constantinople to design a bridge Mathias Enard has given us febrile visions of what such might have involved Ottoman images stand in relief to Renaissance ordering interesting the artist s Beauty comes from abando


  10. says:

    This is a unique fictionalization of Michelangelo s trip to Istanbul to design a bridge for the city Apparently, construction was begun on the bridge, but it was significantly damaged by an earthquake and never finished The writing is immersive, drawing the reader deeply into the mind and emotions of the various characters Not a lot happens, but I still enjoyed reading this brief, beautiful book nevertheless.
