Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Claude-Henri Rocquetand#8212;poet, playwright, and criticand#8212;has marshalled the full range of his talents to create a dazzling historical novel about the artist Peter Bruegel the Elder. To the few facts we haveand#8212;Bruegel died in 1569 around the age of fifty; he lived in Antwerp and in Brussels; his work was much admiredand#8212;Rocquet adds his own speculations on the sights, smells, and textures of Bruegel's world, on the artist's innermost feelings and intimate conversations, on his spiritual life and its possible translation on the artist's canvas.

Synopsis:

In passages of great poetic power, Rocquet takes us from the certain to the probable, from the known to the knowable, to a realm of visions that wonderfully expresses the mystery and spirituality of Bruegel's work.
