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?

His passionate  interest for Occitan literature made rapidly him one of the newest voices of Occitan literary critics in the XXIth century. And finally, he also developped his own poetic creation, on a very modern fashion, as can be seen here- below.
