Example text

Neither painting nor sculpture will now appease my soul that turns toward that love divine. . A thin line separates the fecal and ribald grotesquerie of poem G 267 from the austere autos da fe of the terminal phase. The grotesquerie is the artist persona's concrete experience seen from the backstage viewpoint, hence the reversal of perspective, language, and tone vis-a-vis the prevalent style in Michelangelo's canzoniere. The (saturnalian) reversal makes a strange phantasmagoria of everyday reality, which a jaundiced yet amused eye heightens, by sheer acuity of observance, to eerie power: I' sto rinchiuso come la midolla da la sua scorza, qua pover e solo, come spirto legato in un' ampolla: e la mia scura tomba e picciol volo, dov'e Aragn' e mill'opre e lavoranti, e fan di lor filando fusaiuolo.

The line memorably climaxes the whole crescendo, and it becomes even more intriguing when we pursue its implica­ tions. To begin with, it casts unexpected guilt or blame ("colpa") on the very vocation of art. Has that vocation, or has it not, come from heaven? Perhaps that heaven should be understood Platonically, and astrologically as sometimes happens in Dante, rather than just in the traditionally Chris­ tian sense; after all, the most Platonic poems of Michelangelo happen to be those written for Cavalieri.

In the following stanza, when she smiles or greets him on the street he "jumps up like a rocket" and, to his chagrin, be­ comes self-defeatingly speechless; for the great love he feels inside (stanza 8) might lift him up to the stars, but when he wants to express it, there is no suitable outlet, and this im­ mense love once uttered will look and sound too much smaller than it is, such flights of the soul not being amenable to words. With stanza 10, the platonizing motif of the beloved image entering the lover's soul through his eyes to grow into full mastery of his inner being undergoes an uproarious burlesque metamorphosis, which both parodies genteel Renaissance po­ etry (as well as two nonburlesque pieces by Michelangelo himself, madrigal G 8 and fragment G 44) and fulfills the dramatic requirements of the jolly monologue as such.
