After 20 yr of breakdown (1980-2000), Occitan culture is thus undergoing again a little revival, with more youngsters interested, and, importantly for the purpose of this website, more readers for literature, including even poetry!

Actually, for the first time since 700 years, Occitan literature is not only read by a very narrow circle of literary minded people, but by a true public able to appreciate the works, and glad to meet the authors.
