Tristan l'Hermite

(ca. 1601-1665)
   poet, dramatist, novelist
   Born in the château du Solier, Marche, François l'Hermite, or Tristan l'Hermite, as he is known, recounts his youthful adventures in a spirited autobiographical novel, Le page disgracié(1643). He also wrote collections of poetry, including Les Plaintes d'Acante (1633), rich in lyricism inspired by nature, and Les Amours de Tristan (1638), in which one can find the famous ode "Le Promenoir des deux amants" that was set to music by claude debussy. This collection is one of varied inspirations: burlesque pieces, descriptive poetry, but above all amorous sentiments delicately expressed in musical verse. Tristan l'Hermite's dramatic works include notably a comedy, Le Parasite (1656), and the tragedy in verse, Marianne (1636), a melancholy portrait of passion, which deserves comparison with corneille's Cid. Tristan l'Hermite was elected to the Académie Française in 1649.
