Michelangelo was SO MUCH MORE than "David with his sling / I with my bow" scribbled on some early David sketches - his poetry is incredibly beautiful, Neo Platonic and innovative for the time, dealing with homosexuality and spirituality. Saslow's are the best translations out there. If you're into Renaissance poetry, then I would highly recommend this.
