Joseph Roumanille in Avignon (84)

And another monument to the Provençal poet Joseph Roumanille, but this time in Avignon. Roumanille taught at the collège Dupuy there and Frédéric Mistral was one of his pupils. Under the bust is engraved 'LI SOUNJARELLO', a book he published in Avignon in 1852 and translates as 'The Women Dreamers'.
