La Perlo dey Musos et Coumedies Prouvensalos - Gaspard Zerbin
(The pearl of the muses and Provencal comedies)
Critical edition by Florian Vernet.
A critical approach of a 17 century occitan play, built up from the jean roize edition, Aix, 1655.
Gaspard Zerbin (1590-1650?) a lawyer who lived in aix en provence, was first published in 1655. It consist of five comedies in verse written in provencal occasionally blended with standard and local french. The farce is typical of the carnaval feasts and, through the mixed influences of the humanist comedies and the commedia dell'arte, gives to a unique masterpiece loaded with all the material of the comedy of manners, including constant burlesque. This satiric and parodic play - a counter-text in which the diglossia is constantly made clear - is a guide for the history of the language, for the story of the culture of occitania in the baroque period and of the theatre in france. It can be regarded as the utmost outcome of the creativity of the first provencal renaissance. Although it did not give birth to a new generation of plays, it definitely stands as the starting point of the trend that was to resist the decline of the specific culture of occitania and the triumphant vawes of classiscism.
