Francis Ponge


Wikipedia - "In his most famous work, Le parti pris des choses (1942) ..., he meticulously described common things such as oranges, potatoes and cigarettes in a poetic voice, but with a personal style and paragraph form much like an essay. ... Ponge avoided appeals to emotion and symbolism, and instead sought to minutely recreate the world of experience of everyday objects."
