Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.
Frederic Raphael

  • About
  • Pierre de Ronsard was a French poet born in 1524. He was known as the Prince of Poets among his contemporaries - though he only opted for a life dedicated to study and writing after incurable deafness ended a promising diplomatic career prematurely. He enjoyed generous patronage from Charles IX. Many of the characters among his work are considered to be the most colourful and remarkable in literary history.
