Joseph Marius Diouloufet (19 September 1771, in Éguilles – 19 May 1840, in Cucuron) was a Provençal poet.

Biography[edit]

As a seminarian, Diouloufet had to leave Provence for Italy with the advent of the French Revolution.

Under the Empire, he became a trader in Aix-en-Provence.[1] He made friends with Ambroise Roux-Alphéran, who lived on the same street as him.[2] A librarian in Aix, he was dismissed during the French Revolution of 1830.

His Provençal poetry, fables and tales didn't go unnoticed at the time of publication.[citation needed] His work is pervaded by the use of a very raw strand of Provençal. By the end of his life, he finished a French-Occitan dictionary.[3]

He died from apoplexy.[4]
