Summary:
"Blanchot's narratives are here read with the care, patience, and thoroughness they deserve.

Abstract:

"Blanchot's narratives are here read with the care, patience, and thoroughness they deserve. The collection sustains a remarkable intensity of engagement throughout in so doing opening these narratives out to their necessary context--philosophical, of course; but also literary, political, theological, and biographical--with welcome dedication and integrity."--Martin Crowley, Queens' College, University of Cambridge" ""This outstanding collection--lucid, engaging, generous--illuminates Blanchot and the very notion of t̀he philosophical."--Gerald Prince, University of Pennsylvania" ""This collection contains some very important pieces on a major figure of twentieth-century modernism. Blanchot now has a much wider audience in North American than he did even a few years ago, when it was mostly experimental fiction writers like Paul Auster, Lydia Davis, R.M. Berry, and Steve Tomasula--not literary critics--who took an interest in Blanchot's literary writings. The focus on the ǹarratives' (or, better, f̀ictions') sets this volume apart from, and makes it a good deal more stimulating than, other recent collections of essays on Blanchot."--Gerald Bruns, University of Notre Dame"--Jacket.
