Il penseroso, S157b
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The first version of Il penseroso – later revised for the second book of the Années de pèlerinage – has not been published, and the manuscript does not actually bear a title, but it does contain the same epigraph – a quatrain by Michelangelo which appears in the published collection. There are many minor differences between the two versions, but the intense expression of this simply-laid-out work remains constant.
