Description
The work of Maurice Blanchot is among the most powerful of our time. Calm, incessant, meditative, difficult by virtue of being written in everyday language, Blanchot's fiction, essays, and aphorisms have attended to the most urgent matters of our epoch -- terror, disaster, holocaust, community, friendship, voice, literature, writing. In this collection, scholars not bound by the discipleship following upon Blanchot's name address his work with a different set of questions. These include his relation to the feminine, to narrative voice, to the century's other major reflections on the philosophy of language and perception, to political theory, to his literary contemporaries, and to the practice of reading.
