The versification of Frédéric Mistral

Year: 1918
Publisher: Librairie ancierre H. Campion Publisher
Notice to the reader: It is easier to write a few verses on the virtue of the sun and the song of the cicadas than to patiently read verses while trying to find out how they are made; it is more pleasant to listen to the song of a flute than to dismantle its mechanism. This mechanism, however, is not without interest; both for the public and for poets curious to know all the resources of their art. It is a comprehensive and detailed study of the harmony, rhythmic forms, and techniques of Mistral’s poetry.

Notice to the reader: Here is my tribute to the memory of Alphonse Daudet, in verse and prose. … .. My personal contribution to the memory of the one who was the great friend of Aubanel and Mistral,
the protector of Baptiste Bonnet and who, if he did not have enough faith, in the value and the future of Félibrige, never ignored its poetry or its grandeur, the one who always came, as said still Mistral, drinking at the source of Hippocrene, “in our capital, in Avignon which laughs …” and which for fifty years also mourns the great novelist ..
