Read full description of the books:



At the turn of the 20th century a brilliant Russian writer, Dmitri Merejkowski, wrote this novel, "The Romance of Leonardo Da Vinci," a profound meditation on art and religion. Merejkowski portrays Leonardo as a man of many facets, some of which may be grouped as pagan, some of which are Christian. As a result, Leonardo was filled with conflict and doubts. Striving for the unattainable, he almost never completes a work. Always dissatisfied with what he has done, the artist suffers a characteristically modern "anxiety."

Read information about the author

Ebook The Romance of Leonardo Da Vinci read Online! Dmitry Sergeyevich Merezhkovsky, (Russian: Дмитрий Сергеевич Мережковский) was a Russian novelist, poet, religious thinker, and literary critic. A seminal figure of the Silver Age of Russian Poetry, regarded as a co-founder of the Symbolist movement, Merezhkovsky – with his poet wife Zinaida Gippius – was twice forced into political exile. During his second exile (1918–1941) he continued publishing successful novels and gained recognition as a critic of Soviet Russia. Known both as a self-styled religious prophet with his own slant on apocalyptic Christianity, and as the author of philosophical historical novels which combined fervent idealism with literary innovation, Merezhkovsky was a nine times nominee for the Nobel Prize in literature, which he came closest to winning in 1933.

The words he put in Leonardo da Vinci's mouth in his biographical novel Romance of Leonardo da Vinci -- "I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men" -- are echoed by animal rights activists all over the world and have come to often be misattributed to Leonardo da Vinci himself.
