By Louisa MacKenzie

The 16th century in France used to be marked through spiritual conflict and transferring political and actual landscapes. among 1549 and 1584, even if, the Pléiade poets, together with Pierre de Ronsard, Joachim Du Bellay, Rémy Belleau, and Antoine de Baïf, produced probably the most abiding and irenic depictions of rural French landscapes ever written. In The Poetry of Place, Louisa Mackenzie finds and analyzes the cultural background of French paysage via her research of lyric poetry and its connections with panorama portray, cartography, and land use history.

In the face of damaging environmental switch, lyric poets in Renaissance France frequently wrote approximately idealized actual areas, reclaiming the altered panorama to counteract the violence and lack of the interval and growing within the approach what Mackenzie, following David Harvey, phrases 'spaces of hope.' This exact alliance of French Renaissance reports with cultural geography and eco-criticism demonstrates that sixteenth-century poetry created a strong experience of position which maintains to notify nationwide and neighborhood sentiment today.
