Title: Art et Science de rhetoricque metriffiée
Written By: Gratien du Pont

L'Art et science de rhetoricque metriffiée, paru en 1539 à Toulouse, est l'œuvre de Gratien du Pont. L'auteur y théorise la pratique des participants aux Jeux floraux de Toulouse, un concours poétique organisé chaque année par le Collège des art et science de Rhétorique. Il s'agit d'un ouvrage normatif, probablement le dernier exemple du genre, qui ouvre simultanément la voie à certaines des interrogations qui seront celles des arts poétiques de la seconde moitié du siècle.

The prescriptive Art et science de rhetoricque metriffiée which appeared in Toulouse in 1539 is both one of the last examples of the genre, and an anticipation of the poetics which will come to dominate the second half of the century.
