Etienne Dolet was an early modern French intellectual. He operated a printing press in Lyons at which he wrote, translated, edited his own works and those of others. His work in the world of printing lead him from an early classical education to eventual preference for French. This transition culminated in his publication of La Manière de bien traduire in 1540, his treatise on the necessity of translation from Latin to French. This thesis traces his internal transformation to embracing French.
