The Measure of a Man: A Novel of Leonardo da Vinci

We rated this book:


To be an artist means to see what is around you, just as Leonardo da Vinci did in his lifetime. The Measure of a Man: A Novel of Leonardo da Vinci, which is written by Marco Malvaldi, is a fictional account of the life of the great man, but the factual statements made by Marco at the end of the book still make for a good read.

The Measure of a Man is a good representation of what Leonardo da Vinci could have done in his lifetime, up to a point. Marco has done well in having famous people from the time, such as Savonarola and Lorenzo de Medici, as fellow characters in the story. There were many romantic scenes in the book, and it is a piece of literature that covers the time of the famous artist Leonardo da Vinci well. It is also a novel of creativity that will have readers believing what they have read.

Marco Malvaldi is a creative writer who uses research very well. The writing gives readers a sense of how a romantic artist could have lived his life. This is also a book that caused me to read my humanities textbook in a different way.
