The first Towards of Marino, escaped of the paternal house not to study the Right, were worth to him the protection of the Lord High Admiral de Naples, then with Rome that of the Aldobrandino cardinal. It followed this one in its embassy to the court of Turin, where it attracted itself bad deals by its satirical spirit. In 1615, Marie de Médicis, wife of the king de France from which it had become called protected it in France where Henri IV retained it by a pension of: 2000 ecus.
It is in the leisures that left him the frequentation of the Hôtel of Rambouillet and its connections with the men of letters in favor, Of Bartas, Voiture, Madeleine de Scudéry and Balzac, that he wrote his more famous work, the Adone (1623), a Poème of: 45000 worms which tells the history of Adonis and Venus.
The success of this composition raised such an amount of admiration and by criticisms, the fashion of the Marinisme in its native land inspired and relit there the quarrels of school. The Devotes , which has as a subject the Fable mythological Adonis, puts a Style sharp, gracious and picturesque with the service of an unslung imagination. One mainly reproached him for being unable to follow his subject and to obey all his distractions; the various parts of its work, any Heroic unit, mythological, satirical and romantic, seem to form distinct works as many. In a time when the beautiful spirit tended to replace the feeling, the sought features, the false brilliances, caused nevertheless enthusiasm. The Concetti of Marini found in France, where the language was hardly formed, a particular favor under the name of points.
Marini had conceived the plan of a great poem epic, having for subject the Massacre of the innocent ( Strage degl' innocenti ), of which he wrote only four songs and which he gave up to work with his Adonis . Before coming to France, it had published a collection of various poetries in love ( Rime amorose , Varie, 1602), composed of Sonnet S, Idylle S and parts frays.
In Piedmont, a quarrel with Murtola, which had tried to assassinate it, inspired to him against this poet a succession of sonnets which form a whole volume, Murtoléide (1626). One still has of Marini climbed Lettere, argute, facete (1627, in-8°). Its works were often reprinted during all it. He also wrote Galeria (1620), which reactualizes the work the Tables of Platte Peinture of Philostrate Old the.
A beautiful edition of Devotes it , of Strage degl' Innocenti , followed by a lyric choice of poetries (, in-8°, 2 vol.) was given to Paris in 1849.
Regarded during a long time as a poet mannerist without depth, and attacked by the Church like libertine , it is perceived today like a philosophical poet.
