Ponge lecteur de Boèce dans "Comment une figue de paroles et pourquoi"

Abstract : Ponge ’ s poem “the fig”, a materialistic hymn to humble earthly things, proposes in its expanded version an iterative sequence uniting Boethius and his father-in-law Symmachus. The article examines the possibility that Ponge may have directly or indirectly performed a reading of Boethius. The use of the Grand Larousse du dix-neuvième siècle may have favoured the biased placement of Boethius in the camp of pagan martyrs. Yet The Consolation of Philosophy has a troubling connection to its contemporary counterpart, as both are haunted by the dream of a higher rhetoric, a vestige of the Greek ideal.
