Johannes Vaccaeus belongs to the circle of scholars trying to introduce Italian culture in France, at the very beginning of the sixteenth century. In 1522 he dedicated to Guillaume Budé his Sylva Parrhisia, a didactic poem written in hexameters and explaining the nature and the functions of rhetoric, also providing a catalogue of eloquent men from ancient Greece up to his own time. This volume provides an edition with a French translation and notes of this first authentically humanist French treatise on rhetoric, an introduction on the life and works of Vaccaeus in Paris, and an analysis of the pedagogical methods of this humanist, who tried to adapt to the Parisian public the major poetical theories of Poliziano, using the language of Vergil and Statius.
