Du Bellay's Le Premier livre des Antiquitez de Rome…Plus un Songe ou vision along with his other ‘Roman’ Regrets has received a wide range of criticisms and feedback that, more often than not, appear to be unfavourable. However, in spite of reviews such as those given by M. A. Screech that would pass judgement on what is now seen as the standard edition of both works, other critics such as V. L. Saulnier have given more emphatic evaluations of the ‘emphase’ attributed to the Antiquitez. The problem which concerns the modern reader's ability to gain sensibility and understanding of culture still persists, since focus on the ‘more modern’ Regrets has hindered further appreciation of the Antiquitez. Also, the Rome portrayed in Regrets has provided a smaller view point than that provided by World History.
