Des arbres & des hommes - Josianne Ubaud

Trees & Men - Architecture and plant markers in Provence and Languedoc, for a cultural and symbolic reading of the Mediterranean landscapes.

Why is cedar always associated with the prestigious properties and the micocoulier with the modest Romanesque chapels? Why did the fig tree, the cypress, the trellis inspire so many writers of tongue of oc, while the plane tree and the chestnut tree left them indifferent? Why are species remarkably adapted to the Mediterranean climate gradually falling into oblivion - and why this unbridled enthusiasm for the palm?

The trees were never planted by chance.

Some, by their form, their foliage, their odor - by their history and their symbolic charge too - speak to humans more than others: trees carry a sociology that is exciting to decipher.

The aim of this book is to initiate a cultural reading of the trees used in the Midi in the traditional architectures (village houses, bourgeois houses, masts, sheds, portals, wells, tombs) and to analyze their evolution in Contemporary use. Their names, their evocation in Occitan literature, their place in the discourse or the popular sayings bring a new light on the Mediterranean landscapes. Heirs of an ancient culture or witnesses more recent of the social rank of the owners, amiable providers of shade or proud municipal standards, the trees have much to teach us ... on the men.

Tell me what you plant, I'll tell you who you are.

The author:

Lexicographer and ethnobotanist in Occitan land (Languedoc and Provence), Josiane UBAUD studied the lexicon of plants and the way Occitan man looks at his environment, through the analysis of literary texts and field surveys. Through lectures on Mediterranean vegetation, articles, botanical outings and radio shows, she tries to share her passion for plants and landscapes, always in connection with the oc culture and occitan language.

Josiane Ubaud parle des plantes médicinales en Provence (Gents de Ventor - 2010):
