Early life

Joseph d'Arbaud was born in an aristocratic family in Meyrargues on 4 October 1874.[3] His father was Philippe d'Arbaud and his mother, Marie-Louise Valère-Martin. He was educated by Jesuits in Avignon, then studied the Law in Aix-en-Provence.[3]


After spending a few years with young writers from Aix-en-Provence, he left for Camargue and became a bull-herder.[3] In 1918, he became a chief figure in Félibrige, a literary and cultural association founded by Frédéric Mistral (1830-1914) and other Provençal writers to defend and promote Langue d'oc languages and literatures.[3] Le Monde referred to d'Arbaud as Mistral's fils spirituel (spiritual son).[4]

D'Arbaud wrote in Provençal and translated his own works into French. Mistral penned a foreword to d'Arbaud's 1913 collection of poems Le Laurier d'Arles. Together with Emile Sicard, d'Arbaud also edited a local literary magazine titled Le Feu.[5]


He died in Aix-en-Provence on 2 March 1950.[3]
