This war is recalled again in a later incident in the story: One Saturday in May 6955, the Pagnol family was passing through the grounds of the first châ teau when they came face-to-face with the owner. He was very tall and had a white beard and on one side of his face was a big scar, stretching to the eye socket, from which the eye was missing.
The Pagnols appear to take for granted the status of these two classes of society, while resenting the top status assumed by the nobility. For example when the Pagnols are taking their seats on the bus at the end of their holiday, the other members of the family did not want to sit on the empty rear-facing back seat, and were forced to sit in the middle of the bus, among the peasants Page 85:
La derniè re banquette, qui tourne le dos aux chevaux, é tait vide: comme ma mè re et Paul avaient des nausé es quand on les transportait à reculons, la famille s&rsquo installa au milieu des paysans, tandis que j&rsquo allais m&rsquo asseoir à l&rsquo arriè re tout seul.

The major part of the story of Le châ teau de ma mè re is the account of the times that the family spent at this retreat in the hills of Provence, where the climate suited Mme Pagnol&rsquo s somewhat frail constitution. From the Easter period of the following year, their visits to the holiday home became even more frequent, as they made the journey to the Bastide Neuve every weekend. This had been made possible by the revision of M. Pagnol&rsquo s teaching timetable, which gave him Monday mornings free for the return journey - an arrangement achieved by Mme Augustine Pagnol&rsquo s secret initiative with the headmaster's wife.

And Verlaine&rsquo s character and life contrasted totally with the Republican virtues of Joseph Pagnol listed above. He was irresponsible, idle, immoral, alcoholic, guilty of extreme violence, but the Parisians turned out in force, because he had graced their language with poems of great beauty.
