Notes

First edition, first printing (without the dedication to Lamartine and the note on pronunciation). Mistral's long narrative poem was his first great literary success, and is generally considered his masterpiece. Taking eight years in composition, the poem, written in the Provençal dialect, tells of a young couple's thwarted romance. Mistral (1830-1914) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1904, "in recognition of the fresh originality and true inspiration of his poetic production, which faithfully reflects the natural scenery and native spirit of his people, and, in addition, his significant work as a Provençal philologist".
