A poet
Ronsard led a French group of poets known as La Pléiade, which aimed to enrich the French language by discreet imitation and borrowing from the language and literary forms of the classics and the works of the Italian Renaissance and by reviving archaic forms of French. Ronsard took the alexandrine poetic form, often previously considered pedestrian, and established it as "the classic medium for scathing satire, elegiac tenderness, and tragic passion". During his lifetime he was recognized in France as the prince of poets and a figure of national significance.
