school at, Avignon, which was a few
miles distant from his home. After
leaving school he studied law at Alx,
but soon he abandoned law for litera
ture. Though Mistral's poems have
won wide popularity for the charm of
their omance, his chief work and the
one that brought him the important
prize of the 'Institute of France, is his
Provencal-French dictionary, In the
preparation of which be spent ten
years. The poet is a leader in tbi
movement to preserve local languages,
literature and traditions. He believes
that the historic sections ot France,
Spain, Italy, Flanders, Hungary and
all countries where localities had been
strong enough to create a language,
deserve attention for the revival of
these. Year by year the importance
of Mistral's work has come to be more
generally recognized,1 and in his old

upon him. ' ' ; "
