Thursday 14 November: Joachim du Bellay (1522-1560)
"Happy the man who, like Ulysses, has made a fine voyage”, wrote this humanist from the Pleiad group exiled in Rome and dreaming of his native Touraine. A French Renaissance figure and acknowledged master of the language, Du Bellay allowed himself to be pervaded by a fruitful melancholy that has been enchanting readers for half a millennium.”  (text by Olivier Barrot)
