Contents: Part one: To Florence: She who was so precious to you --
This grand book the universe --
Bright stars speak of your virtues --
To have the truth seen and recognized --
In the very face of the sun --
Observant executrix of God's commands --
Malice of my persecutors --
Conjecture here among shadows --
Part two: On Bellosguardo: How our father is favored --
To busy myself in your service --
What we require above all else --
Because of our zeal --
Through my memory of their eloquence --
Small and trifling body --
On the right path, by the grace of God --
Tempest of our many torments --
Part three: In Rome: While seeking to immortalize your fame --
Since the Lord chastises us with those whips --
Hope of having you always near --
That I should be begged to publish such a work --
Part four: In care of the Tuscan Embassy, Villa Medici, Rome: How anxiously I live, awaiting word from you --
In the chambers of the Holy Office of the Inquisition --
Vainglorious ambition, pure ignorance, and inadvertence --
Faith vested in the miraculous Madonna of Impruneta --
Judgment passed on your book and your person --
Part five: At Siena: Not knowing how to refuse him the keys --
Terrible destruction on the feast of San Lorenzo --
Recitation of the penitential psalms --
Book of life, or, a prophet accepted in his own land --
Part six: From Arcetri: My soul and its longing --
Until I have this from your lips --
As I struggle to understand --
Memory of the sweetnesses.
Responsibility: Dava Sobel.
