Born in October 23, 1552 / Died in July 20, 1581 / France / French


He wrote a comedy in prose, Les Contents (written c. 1580, published after his death) which was largely inspired (like the works of his contemporary Pierre de Larivey) by contemporary Italian comedy. Turnèbe also wrote three Petrarchian sonnets (the first in French, the second in Italian and the third in Spanish), a poem entitled La Puce (using a Latinized version of his name: Odet de Tournebu) and twelve sonnets entitled Sonets sur les ruines de Luzignan addressed to Catherine Des Roches (with whom he declared himself in love).
