This fascinating study traces the artistic development of one of the major poets of the French Renaissance, Joachim Du Bellay (1522-1560). Tucker focuses on how the poet differed from his contemporaries, describes in detail the importance of his move to Rome in 1553, and provides a close analysis of Du Bellay's complex sonnet sequence, Antiquitez de Rome. In assessing the sonnets, Tucker first locates their central importance within the poet's production, then further situates them with the living and scholarly context of Du Bellay's Rome. Throughout, the volume highlights the sonnets' rich intertextual framework in classical, neo-Latin, and vernacular literature, making them more accessible to the modern reader.

Review:


"I wish to greet this book with delighted applause and say: Read it, if you have any interest in the relationship of poetry to philosophy and history, of the Renaissance to the past, or the Pleiade to the rest of French literature, of Renaissance concerns about the nature and value of art."--Bibliotheque d'Humanisme et Renaissance


"He has much to say that is both new and important."--Renaissance Quarterly

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1994. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Poet s Odyssey traces the artistic development of one of the major poets of the French Renaissance, Joachim Du Bellay (?1522-60), showing how he differed from his contemporaries (in particular his great rival Ronsard) and the importance of his move to Rome in 1553. In this unique study of Du Bellay and his Antiquitez de Rome, Dr Tucker makes this complex sonnet sequence more accessible to the modern reader, highlighting its rich intertextual framework in Classical, neo-Latin and vernacular literature. He also redresses a critical imbalance. Du Bellay and his immediate contemporaries identified the Antiquitez, rather than the Regrets, as his major work. Tucker demonstrates its central importance within the poet s production, and further situates it within a whole tradition of reflection upon Rome and her destiny from Classical times onwards. The Antiquitez are also seen to represent the ultimate step in the development of a poetic style and sensibility in diametric opposition to Ronsard s. Finally, Dr Tucker also relates the collection to the literary and scholarly context of Du Bellay s Rome. Seller Inventory # APC9780198158653
