    • found: Du Bellay, Joachim. The regrets, 2006:title page (edited and translated by Richard Helgerson) page x (Les regrets; published in 1558) page 9 (a sequence of 192 sonnets preceded by a Latin epigram and a 108-line dedicatory poem; title on the first edition is Les regrets et autres oeuvres poetiques; some scholars believed the Regrets stop at sonnet 130, followed by the Autres oeuvres poetiques; but nothing in the sequence as it originally appeared tells us that sonnet 130 signals the passage from one work to another; the Regrets is always both one work and many, a single sequence, divided in narrative terms between Rome and France)

Slavitt) page x (Les regrets) page xii (There are 191 sonnets in Les regrets et autres oeuvres poétiques, as the 1558 volume is entitled, but more than one editor has suggested that the last sixty of these do not belong to the sonnet sequence but are the "other poetic works" to which the title page refers)
    • found: Wikipedia, September 26, 2016(The Regrets (originally in French Les Regrets) is a collection of poetry by the French Renaissance poet Joachim du Bellay, published in 1558. The 191 sonnets that make up this work are written using alexandrines. These poems express the disappointment he experienced as a result of his travel to Italy from 1553 to 1557. At first, he had been very enthusiastic to go to Italy because of its status as birthplace of the Roman Empire and later of the Renaissance but he was deeply disillusioned by what he found and quickly missed France)
