In Early Modern Europe, the printing press, the revered “ut pictura poiesis,” the Paragone, the vogue of emblems, and Neoplatonic thought – among other things – appear to have fostered a dominance of the eye, if not the supremacy of sight as the superior sense. Yet poetry remembers its formerly sung and mythically oracular nature, and struggles with its affinities with oratory. What role, then, do the ear and hearing play as a polysemous motif in French poetry? What about the oral and aural channels as a valued medium for the cognitive, rhetorical, political, aesthetic and philosophical workings of poetry, in the 15th through 17th centuries ?
