Chapter Summary

This chapter sketches the general outline of Marots Psalm paraphrases, highlighting the main characteristics regarding both content and scope. Translating a classical text in the sixteenth century was highly esteemed and was considered a decidedly creative enterprise. The translator was viewed as the last link in a chain originating at Parnassus. The Psalm paraphrases have hardly been systematically analysed with regard to content. The author organised the analysis cumulatively, starting at the most general level and only gradually digging deeper to uncover specific elements, every time fine-tuning the method to the material. The next thing is to understand the peculiarities of Marots Psalm translation.
