From the Publisher

This seminal book examines the interaction of literary practice and theory in 16th-century France in the context of the great Renaissance writers, Erasmus, Rabelais, Ronsard, and Montaigne.

From the Jacket

In the sixteenth century, Latin theorists and French vernacular writers shared a common preoccupation with problems of writing, its nature and status. This is an exploration of the shifting relationship between literature and literary theory.
