Francis Ponge - Selected Poems
"The deftness and creativity manifested in the translation do justice to one of the major works of contemporary French literature." Jean-Jacques Thomas
Through translations by two major contemporary poets and a scholar intimate with the Ponge canon, this volume offers selections of mostly earlier poetry — "Le parti pris des choses," "Pièces," "Proêmes," and "Nouveau nouveau receuil" — as representative of the strongest work of this modern French master who is recognized as one of the finest French poets of his time.
