In this Book

summary
Opening a new perspective on Malherbe's major poems, this volume focuses on their design and meaning. In his introduction, Rubin defines and illustrates "implied comparison." There follows a series of explications which recover each poem's values from analogies concealed in images or motif patterns. The work concludes with a description of formal constants and variables in the six completed odes.
