Overly Ambitious

2out of 5

by Albert A on July 19, 2012

A colorful, albeit biased, glimpse into 14th and 15th Century Italy. Mr.Greenblatt's central thesis is that the Renaissance was inspired by the rediscovery of the Lucretius poem, " On the Nature of Things." In my view, Mr. Greenblatt is never able to prove anything like causality.
The book does provide a very personal view of many of the central,and minor, characters of the Renaissance.
