This book consists of a number of introductory studies of the major French poets from Villon's time until to-day. It is a series of essays in characterization, defining the diverse impressions these poets are likely to make on a modern reader of ordinary sensibility. It is not a history of five centuries of French poetry, and it neither compares great poets to one another, nor describes the schools to which they belonged or the poetic doctrines they espoused. It is about introducing a reader who appreciates poetry to a variety of French poets who--thanks to their beautiful verses and highly interesting lives--might join the ranks of those greatly appreciated by readers.
