Les  Marguerites

This is the first critical edition of Les Marguerites, poèmes héroïque, a volume originally published in Bordeaux in 1676. Written in alexandrines, divided into five cantos (chants), Les Marguerities offers a fascinating example of playful contemporary poetic taste where epic heroism is transformed into gallantry.
