Antoine Bertin (1752–1790)

Bertin, Antoine (ber-ta‘). A French poet (1752–90), much admired by his contemporaries, who, somewhat extravagantly, styled him the French Propertius. He was a friend of Parny, and like him excelled in elegiac and epistolary verse. His principal works are: ‘Voyage in Burgundy’ (1777) and ‘The Loves’ (1780).
