Francis Ponge, born in Montpellier in 1899, began writing prose poems in the 1920s, though his first collection was not published until 1942. He joined the Communist Party in 1937 (he left it in 1947) and was active in the Resistance during World War Two. In the late 1950s his work was praised by Sartre and Camus, and he collaborated with painters such as Picasso, Braque and Dubuffet. He died in 1988.
