Henry Humbert : poète baroque lorrain

Abstract : Only a few dates emerge from the biographical survey made of Henry Humbert. These points of reference are clearly inadequate to restore coherently the texture of the poet's life. To take up the works, two ways can be followed: we must study them from a historical point of view that is we must put them back in the political and cultural context, and we must also study the rhetorical aspects to bring out the stylistic qualities. The extreme diversity of the works that reached us is striking. They all bear the mark of the time and obviously contain a certain number of commonplaces, but they also reveal Henry Humbert's virtuosity and sometimes his poetic talent. The work, “la sepmaine saincte”, by the subject treated and by the so fervent devotion that expresses itself in all the pages is representative of the spiritual literature recommended by the counter-reformation. The most varied figures of speech come out in this work. The poems, “les tenebres”, are also mostly devoted to the passion, but they are composed of lyric poems, often moving, in which the poet recalls all his misfortunes. “The combat à la barrière” constitutes an occasional work, in which Henry Humbert handles skillfully the figures that are usual in this kind of literature.
