Abstract

Memories of that past prevented Marcel from returning to France for many years. Although the focus of his research from the beginning was on the great French writers of the sixteenth century, he did his early postdoctoral research in Italy. His scholarly work there provided him with unique insights into the influence of late Renaissance Italy not only on Rabelais, but also on Marguerite de Navarre, Montaigne, and Scève. The results of his discoveries were published over the years in eight monographs and more than seventy articles dedicated to the work of these writers. As important to Marcel as his own scholarship, however, was his contribution to promoting the international exchange of ideas between scholars in the field of Renaissance studies. The ten collections of essays that he edited on topics ranging from Pirandello to Ronsard to death in fifteenth-century Florence are the results of conferences that he organized and directed. The subjects and the list of contributors, drawn from five continents, testifies to his concern for the vitality of intellectual communication in a broad range of disciplines. He also used these conferences as a means of putting talented younger scholars in contact with senior people in their
