Amadis Jamyn (1538?–1592/3)

Jamyn, Amadis (jä-ma‘). A French poet; born in Chaource, Champagne, about 1538; died there, about 1592. He wrote in imitation of Ronsard, producing neat and dainty but rather insipid sonnets, in which we are assured that love, while a grand thing, has yet its inconveniences. ‘The Hunt’ and ‘Liberality’ are among his pieces.
