La pomme de fleurs (FICTION) (French Edition)
Again what struck those who read his poetry were the wild, untrammeled flow of words and images, the vast vocabulary, and the epic sonority of many of the lines … by reference to an environment by which impulsive Italian and Southern French blood scorned moderation. In his early career in journalism and as author of six books of poetry and sixteen novels, however, Audiberti was not recognized as the intensely metaphysical writer that he showed himself to be as a playwright.
In his first play, Quoat-Quoat, was produced.
The play enjoyed a success de scandale in Paris, and his reputation as an important dramatist was made. The conflict between paganism and Christianity is treated overtly in Quoat-Quoat. In The Theater of Protest and Paradox: Quoat-Quoat is written as a satire of a nineteenth-century melodrama, a sort of Pirates of Penzance from hell.
The spy, however, defies his fate by committing suicide, believing that by this act he is the master of his own destiny. At the close of the play the Captain, who may be God himself, raises his hand and destroys the ship and all aboard, returning the universe to primeval emptiness. The play combines fantasy and farce to examine the serious issues of life, death, and man's individual identity in the universe.

Audiberti's most produced play is La Hobereaute, in which the struggle between good and evil is played out in terms of the conflict between nature and the Church. In a stylized view of the Middle Ages set in ninth-century Burgundy, the dying druidic religion, the cult of the oak and mistletoe, makes a last, desperate defense against the encroaching new religion of Christianity.

La Hobereaute, is a spirit of nature that flies through the air and slips to the bottom of the lake where she sees "the silence of motionless, dazzling truth. Such a marriage can only disgrace the church that sanctions it, and Lotvy swears eternal revenge upon them, burning convents and violating nuns.
When he comes to the monastery near the Baron's chateau, where he hopes to finally vanquish his enemy and win La Hobereaute, he is captured by the Baron and bound to a tree. There he is killed by one of his own followers who believes he has gone over to the enemy. La Hobereaute embraces him and is strangled by the enraged and jealous Baron Massacre, who then kills himself.

Pronko wrote in Avant-Garde, "The precise meaning of La Hobereaute is not always clear, but in its total impact it surely suggests that man, torn between good and evil Lotvy , persecuted in his natural feelings by a malevolent deity or some unjust earthly rule Massacre, the Church , can now find happiness and unity union with the nature goddess only through death. Bound to a tree the tree of life, the cross of man's suffering , Lotvy can at last be united with La Hobereaute, for death has released the sprite and returned her to her former supernatural condition. She is, in fact, the spirit of the universe, nature personified, and man is her child.
His frustrated desires have seemingly given birth to a horrible monster who ravages the region raping and killing young women. Denying that perhaps the monster is man himself, the community relaxes its vigilance and the monster can continue his rampage. The play ends inconclusively leaving the impression that the church, in spite of its militancy, has failed to destroy the natural human sexual drives it has suppressed.

In all of Audiberti's plays, however, it is the words that always take priority over the acting or staging. Audiberti's later works were increasingly mystical and profound though many felt that some excesses in language and literary device were too freely indulged at the cost of dramatic effectiveness.
