The Theoretical Background wisdom, piety, etc. Finally, there is also 31 no lack of the more ab- struse, apparently shocking allegory associated with inspired poetry, including a number of portrayals of the adultery of Mars and Venus. We shall largely concentrate on these last two types of art in this study. Both were allegorical traditions at work in the visual arts and poetry before Ronsard began work on his own compositions.

This feature of Ronsard's writing calls into question the distinc- tion between the apparently linear nature of reading poetry, as con- with the non-linear nature of reading a painting. ^"* In the case of a short poem, a sonnet perhaps, be that the linear approach even this is it the most obvious one, though open to question.
