Considers the Renaissance trope of poetry's power to animate and 'breathe life' into sculpture and its relevance for the comparison of words and images in the fifteenth-century Roman Academy. The import of the idea for Pomponio Leto's collection of antiquities -- which included antique inscriptions but no known antique sculptures -- is considered, as well as its relevance for the Academy's defense of poetry generally.
