This work presents the first comprehensive study of epic poetry in France at the end of the Renaissance, from Ronsard's Franciade (1572) to Chapelain's preface to Marino's Adone (1623). This study unearths a little-known body of about eighty epic poems, composed by poets as great as Du Bellay, d'Aubigné, Du Bartas and d'Urfé. Often surprising, these poems reveal the heroic spirit that inspired the contemporaries of the last Valois kings and the early Bourbon kings. This study examines the reception in France of epic works from Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Italian Renaissance, explains poetic theory and contrasts theory with practice.This work also reveals divisions that occurred in epic poetry. After Ronsard, the genre tended to specialize by category, each with its own rhetoric, theme and philosophy. As a result, this work proposes a classification system for each category of epic poetry corresponding to religious, ethical, philosophical, political, and aesthetical orientations.
