1605, Sep 241672, Apr 21
a French bishop, poet and exegete. His verse-writing early won the interest of a relative in Paris, Valentin Conrart, at whose house the literary world gathered. He is now known for his work of criticism Discours de la po├ęsie chr├ętienne from 1633. He turned his talent for versification to religious uses, his best known productions being a metrical version of the Psalms, poems on St. Paul, the assumption, St. Eustace, Mary Magdalen, and one of 15,000 lines on the annals of the Church. The monotony and mechanical arrangement of the poems are relieved at intervals by passages remarkable for thought or expression.
