The Poet's Odyssey

While Marie de La Haye's eulogistic ode was used as an introductory poem to one of De Bellay's many writings, de La Haye's evaluation regarding the quality of De Bellay's and Ronsard's prominence in the field of poetics is found to be contrasting with Du Bellay's less enthusiastic epître-préface and his other poetic collections that followed. However, in Antiquitez de Rome, we observe how Du Bellay is able to further develop and fulfil this contradiction as he adapts the arrogance portrayed by de La Haye in describing his and Ronsard's works. While de La Haye's work is also able to cover both the north and south hemispheres of the world, Du Bellay believed that such a global expansion would only lead to internal discord and carnage.
