Vividly depicting the personality and politics of Renaissance France, a moving and credible account of Pierre Ronsard, sixteenth century France's greatest poet. This version of Ronsard is a melancholy, reflective figure, ill, weary, his great reputation diminished as he is succeeded by a trivial new generation...He broods over his disappointments in love...With wistfulness tinged with remorse, he recalls his life as a courtier, diplomat, scholar, Defender of the Faith, court poet...Most of this has been forgotten; what is vividly remembered over the centuries is the delicate, haunting lyric poetry - Ronsard's revenge."" - Publishers Weekly.
