This work examines the patriotism of the French poet Joachim du Bellay, as expressed in the prose and verse produced during his brief career (1549-1560). His prose, "Manifesto La deffence et illustration de la langue Francoise", and his poetry are considered at length. An Appendix to the book sets the poet's considerable output of public verse against the events which inspired it. A second major focus is the effect of his residency in Rome on the formulation of his patriotism.
