Matthew 8. In this regard, the Horatian model proves important since its author was the most self-conscious of all Roman poets about tensions between benefaction and gratitude, compensation and autonomy. This transposition of her role projects a whiff of resistance to fashionable dictates of court poetry and their requirement that the speaker display his poetic talents to an indifferent mistress and an often indifferent readership. He substitutes his name for hers and then diverts her attention by proclaiming that she will be honored.
It is a system of court poetry that falls under attack — the posturing and pleading and vying for patronage by exploiting conventional themes favored by a sometimes philistine readership. For this voluntary gift, he has reaped no tangible reward. When she does not reciprocate, he compensates by celebrating his poetic autonomy and anticipating his poetic fame. As it happens, Ronsard himself had already used these texts for models in his own earlier poetry. Ausonius served him especially in his ode 1. Both Catullus and Ausonius served him on other occasions in carpe diem poems addressed to Marie de Bourgueil in his Le second livre des Amours.
But the courtly context pressures him to strategize with entrepreneurial skills in order to shape these resources into something new. Far from responding to this turn of events with cynicism or despair, Ronsard welcomes it. If anything , he embraces Petrarchism from the perspective of craftsmanship as an exceptionally challenging mode to reinvent.
