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
