X, "Le Sang embaumé des roses" : sang et passion dans la poésie amoureuse de Pierre de Ronsard

0.00 CHF

The Pléiade group’s love poetry reflects the neo-platonic philosophy which sees passion as a disease of the blood. After presenting the system of humours accepted by Renaissance medicine, this study will explore a series of commonly accepted beliefs about blood and blood disorders in Ronsard’s love poems. His works, in fact, retrace a ritual : in springtime the patient is infected by a fatal attack of love. The poet carries an incurable wound in his heart, which compels him to write. The poison, which spreads through his body, shares the age-old dread caused by women’s cursed blood and obsessive images fill his spirit. The lover is threatened by Cassandre’s bile, by Marie’s phlegm and by melancholy. The 1578 editions of his poems, and in particular his Sonets pour Helene, seek to exorcise this evil by restoring a luminous blood. But, at the same time, the poet dreams of changing his blood and his heart. He yearns to be a living sacrifice while desiring the intimate blood of virginal roses.
