Occitan poetry  980-2006

by Joan-Frederic Brun


Medieval poetry: the kingdom of love
XVI-XVIII century: tasty baroque antiliteratures
XIX th century: toward a renaissance
XIX th century (1854-1914):  spreading and sclerosis of the Provençal miracle
XX th century (1920-1965): the anguish of no future
XX th century (1965-1981): "un país que vòl viure" (a country that just wants to live)
XX th century (1981-2000): postoccitanisme
XXI th century: just a living literature among many other ones?

  • "CIEL d'Oc" The Ciel d'Oc is a centralized digital database for all documents written in the Occitan language (Langue d'Oc). The corresponding documents are held in private and public libraries as well as museums in Provence, elsewhere in Europe and around the world. A thousand years worth of literature and writings in this language now have a digital sanctuary in Provence.
