"Soap occupies a crucial, pivotal position in Ponge's work. Begun during the German occupation when he was in the Resistance, though completed two decades later, it determined, according to Ponge, the form of almost all his postwar writing. With this work, he began to turn away from the small, perfect poem toward a much more open form, a kind of prose poem which incorporates a laboratory or workshop, recounting its own process of coming into being along with the final result. The outcome is a new form of writing, which one could call "processual poetry." Ponge's later work, from Soap on, is a very important tool in the questioning and rethinking of literary genres, of poetry and prose, of what is literature. There is a blurring of boundaries between Soap and soap (which was hard to come by during the Resistance and is also, of course, metaphorical for a larger social restitution). Soap contains the sum of Ponge's aesthetics and materialist ethics and his belief in the supremacy of language as it becomes the object of the text. In the words of Serge Gavronsky, "this work, perhaps one of the longest running metaphors in literature, slowly unwinds, bubbles in verbal inventions, and finally evaporates, leaving the water slightly troubled, slightly darker, but the hands clean, really clean. . . . Out of murky literary habits, Ponge has devised a way of cleaning his text, and through it, man himself, his vocabulary, and as a consequence, his way of being in the world."" --from the publisher's website

""Written over a series of early mornings from 1967 to 1973 in his seclusion at his country home, Mas des Vergers, The Table offers a final chapter in Francis Ponge's endless interrogation of the unassuming objects in his life: in this case, the table upon which he wrote. In his labored employment of words to destroy words and get at the presence lying beneath his elbow, Ponge charts out a space of silent consolation that lies beyond (and challenges) scientific objectivity and poetic transport. This is one of Ponge's most personal, overlooked, and because it was the last project he had been working on when he passed away, his least processed works. It reveals the personal struggle Ponge engaged in throughout all of his writing, a hesitant uncertainty he usually pared away from his published texts that is at touching opposition to the manufactured, "durable mother" of the table on and of which he here writes. Ponge's homage to this "soil for the pen" makes for an indefinable text: a poetic phenomenology by a dictionary flaneur that lies somewhere between personal diary, writerly testament, and contemplative effort to discern and define a durability that underlies the ultimate transitoriness of our lives and our efforts, written or otherwise."--Publisher's description

"Le 19 mars 1944, Albert Camus et Maria Casarès se croisent chez Michel Leiris. L'ancienne élève du Conservatoire, originaire de La Corogne et fille d'un républicain espagnol en exil, n'a que vingt et un ans. Elle a débuté sa carrière en 1942 au Théâtre des Mathurins, au moment où Albert Camus publiait L'Étranger chez Gallimard. L'écrivain vit alors seul à Paris, la guerre l'ayant tenu éloigné de son épouse Francine, enseignante à Oran. Sensible au talent de l'actrice, Albert Camus lui confie le rôle de Martha pour la création du Malentendu en juin 1944. Et durant la nuit du Débarquement, Albert Camus et Maria Casarès deviennent amants. Ce n'est encore que le prélude d'une grande histoire amoureuse, qui ne prendra son vrai départ qu'en 1948. Jusqu'à la mort accidentelle de l'écrivain en janvier 1960, Albert et Maria n'ont jamais cessé de s'écrire, notamment lors des longues semaines de séparation dues à leur engagement artistique et intellectuel, aux séjours au grand air ou aux obligations familiales. Sur fond de vie publique et d'activité créatrice (les livres et les conférences, pour l'écrivain ; la Comédie-Française, les tournées et le TNP pour l'actrice), leur correspondance croisée révèle quelle fut l'intensité de leur relation intime, s'éprouvant dans le manque et l'absence autant que dans le consentement mutuel, la brûlure du désir, la jouissance des jours partagés, les travaux en commun et la quête du véritable amour, de sa parfaite formulation et de son accomplissement. Nous savions que l'oeuvre d'Albert Camus était traversée par la pensée et l'expérience de l'amour. La publication de cette immense correspondance révèle une pierre angulaire à cette constante préoccupation. "Quand on a aimé quelqu'un, on l'aime toujours", confiait Maria Casarès bien après la mort d'Albert Camus ; "lorsqu'une fois, on n'a plus été seule, on ne l'est plus jamais"."--Page 4 of cover
