Emblems of Desire: Selections from the Delie of Maurice Sceve Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Richard Sieburth has performed a miracle of literary invention. He has made these poems sing.”—Paul Auster

A forgotten masterpiece of French poetry, Emblems of Desire is a selection of 449 love poems first published in Lyons in 1544. Full of passionate ironies and charged obscurity, Maurice Scève is considered a sixteenth-century Stéphane Mallarmé. His oblique self-portraiture laid the groundwork for many contemporary poets. Poet Michael Palmer calls Richard Sieburth “one of our finest living scholars and translators.”

Maurice Scève (c.1500–c.1564) was at the center of Lyonnese côterie that elaborated the theory of spiritual love.

About the Author

Maurice Scve (c. 1500-c. 1564) was at the center of the so-called Lyons school of poets - the first to bring the influence of the Italian literary renaissance into France. In the musicality and erudition of his work, Sceve forms the link between the schools of Marot and the Pliade in the history of French poetry.
