Chapter Summary

Next to the cooperation between Clément Marot and Jean Calvin with regard to the Psalms, this chapter uncovers some fundamental differences between them, especially concerning their appreciation of the natural life. To assess how far-reaching this difference have been turns to what is known from Marots life in and after Geneva, both actual and as reflected in texts, trying to find traces that might reflect something of Marots feelings about his stay in Geneva, which one knows lasted about a year. First, the chapter notices a constant presence of a specific cultural milieu around Marot which in and after Geneva is closely linked to François Bonivard. Marot apparently felt at home and at ease in this civilised cultural environment. A second element is the powerful re-emergence of Ovid after Marot finished his Psalm translations in Geneva.
