These fifteen essays by former doctoral students, now distinguished seiziémistes, of François Rigolot, Meredith Howland Pyne Professor of French Literature at Princeton University, represent a tribute to his qualities as professor, scholar, and person who embodies both a Montaignian esprit généreux and a Rabelaisian pantagruélisme. They pay homage to his renowned erudition and publications on all aspects of French Renaissance literature, his pedagogical skills, his support of students and colleagues, his leadership at Princeton University, and his inspirational personality. The balanced mixture of creative imagination, rigorous explication de texte, and delightful personal rhetoric that characterizes Professor Rigolot’s scholarly works still forms a source of inspiration for his students, as is clear in this volume. Regrouping the major fields of interest in which the minds of magister and discipuli produced the most fruitful dialogues (poetry, the Renaissance au féminin, Rabelais, and Montaigne), and spanning a wide variety of authors (Petrarch, Scève, Ronsard, Crétin, Marguerite de Navarre, Louise Labé, Rabelais, Montaigne, La Boétie, and Pascal), these studies form a tribute to the extraordinary breadth of Professor Rigolot’s research interests.
