Jean Salmon Macrin (1490-1557), famous neo-latin poet, native from Loudun, in France's Touraine region, held the position of official valet and poet for king Francis the First, like his colleague Clément Marot. He was considered during his lifetime the greatest lyric poet after the great Horatius.
This book proposes an edition, French translation and a commentary of the Hymns of 1537, a key book in Macrin’s production. In these poems, Macrin returns to a more ardent yet intimate devotion, a sign of his shift towards family topics. Macrin’s poems are a synthesis between profane lyricism and Erasmus’ philosophy. The reader will find in this book occasional lyricism, official odes, spiritual meditations, praise to humanists, hymns to God, the Virgin Mary and the saints, as well as domestic and autobiographic odes. All poems demonstrate a wonderful harmony between erudition, metric virtuosity, and ideals of sincerity.
