"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
The making of the Pré = La fabrique du Pré by Francis Ponge( Book )

37 editions published between 1971 and 2021 in French and English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The making of the Pré is the culmination of Francis Ponge's loving struggle with language. To say that this work is just a text with illustrations, or simply a notebook of preliminary sketches leading to a final poem, or to call it merely a self-demonstrating development of a thought process, a hymn of praise, or an essay on the way that language represents objects and emotions would be insufficient. -- Introduction
La rage de l'expression by Francis Ponge( Book )

63 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Mute Objects of Expression, Francis Ponge proclaims his goal: to accept the challenge which objects offer to language. Fortunately for the reader, these objects--less chosen than received spontaneously--are perceived with unique Pongean art and humor in this volume growing out of the unoccupied southern Loire countryside where his family lived from 1940 to 1943. Because of the wartime shortages, much of the book was drafted in a small notebook that made up his sole supply of paper. Ponge's poems recall the violent perfume of mimosas, the cries of carnations, and the flirtations of wasps. La rage de l'expression is one of Ponge's most beloved collections. --Archipelago Books

Œuvres complètes by Francis Ponge( Book )

27 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in French and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ponge, ou la rage, dans ses proêmes, d'exprimer la chose, qui nous prend à partie pour «atteindre enfin par la parole au point dialectique où lasituent sa forme et son milieu, sa condition muette et l'exercice de sa profession juste». Ponge, ou l'homme en chemin vers l'homme dans ce dire où l'objet montre «ce qu'il a de brut, de différent» au terme de l'investigation aimante du regard poétique, où se trouve conjuré le sort de l'«opiniâtrement clos». Ponge, c'est aussi, la quête du langage adéquat, quête incessante que souligne la genèse des textes. Les mots, le style doivent rendre compte du dessein humaniste du poète : être le héraut - plus que le chantre - de ce qui l'entoure et qu'artisan il détoure pour l'accoucher de son secret/projet - «une exacte compréhension du monde sans doute est à ce prix». «L'art de vivre d'abord y devait trouver son compte : il nous fallait relever ce défi.» Le texte, jusqu'en sa matérialité, se veut pièce à conviction dans le réseau mouvant des recueils toujours recomposés, avec, en ligne de fuite, le rêve mallarméen du Livre

La table by Francis Ponge( Book )

15 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""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
