Copy 27 of 60 on vélin Arches. Charrue (Plow) is the second of two works by the fictional Monsieur Songe, the title character of the 1982 novel by Robert Pinget (1919-1997), an avant-garde playwright and novelist. Charrue is presented as a book by Monsieur Songe, most likely a stand-in for Pinget himself. The text relates to the difficulties of writing, especially as aging affects the memory.

Bound by Christine Giard. 11cm x 19 cm.
