Description: This comparative study focuses on the shaping influence of Italy's greatest Renaissance poet, Francesco Petrarca, on the lyric collections of France's most celebrated Renaissance poet, Pierre de Ronsard. By helping to define the nature of Ronsard's particular response to Petrarch, Sara Sturm-Maddox revises the history of French Renaissance "Petrarchism."

Unlike previous works, which compared individual poems by these authors in terms of source and imitation, this study traces the larger lines of Ronsard's engagement with the underlying "story" and evolving self-portrait of the Petrarchan lyric protagonist. Sturm-Maddox argues that Ronsard's imitative strategy in three of his lyric collections -- the Amours of 1552-53, the Sonets pour Helene, and the small sequence "Sur la mort de Marie" added to the Second Livre des Amours in 1578 -- draws upon what she terms lyric impersonation, giving singular prominence to the relation between the textual Ronsard and the textual Petrarch as protagonists.

In this first book-length exploration of the presence of Petrarch in Ronsard's Amours, Sturm-Maddox draws upon her extensive previous work in the French and Italian lyric, including two books examining intertextual strategies in Petrarch's Rime sparse. Her study cites the French and Italian poems under discussion in both the original and translation, thus facilitating further comparative examination. Many of the poems by Ronsard appear here in English for the first time.
