About the Authors
  • First published in 1904, this book forms part of a two-volume set examining the development of literature during the French Renaissance. Taken together, the volumes cover the period 1525 to 1605, incorporating detailed information on numerous works and key literary figures, beginning with Francis I and his court and moving through to Mathurin Régnier. Both volumes were written by the renowned Cambridge literary critic and classicist Arthur Tilley (1851–1942). These books will be of value to anyone with an interest in French literature and the Renaissance.
