Synopsis:

French poet Clement Marot's tiny poem "A une damoyselle malade," written some 400 years ago, is the unlikely launching point for Douglas Hofstadter's latest exploration of the power of human thought. In analyzing some 30 translations, each distinct and delightful in its own right, Hofstadter shows that language, like music, has layers of intellectual and emotional complexity that no computer can ever mimic. Hofstadter's analysis and renderings of this obscure little poem become the perfect metaphor for exploring the mysterious nature and inimitability of human intelligence.


Review:

"Le Ton Beau de Marot is a dazzlingly smart, useful, impassioned, and extremely enjoyable book. Read it and learn."

Frank Kermode
