This timely collection of essays is the first to be written on the work of Maurice Blanchot in English. One of the finest writers of our time, Blanchot is a contemporary of Bataille and Levinas; his writing has influenced the likes of Derrida and Foucault.
Eminent commentators featured here include: Simon Critchley, Paul Davies, Cristopher Fynsk, Rodolphe Gasche, Leslie Hill, Michael Holland, Jeffery Mehlman, Roger Laporte, Ian Maclachlan, Marie-Claire Ropars-Wuilleumier, Gillian Rose and Ann Smock.
The essays consider the political implications of Blanchot''s questioning the relationship between philosophy and literature. In addition, the provocative issue of Blanchot''s politics during the 1930s is clarified by a letter from Blanchot to one of the contributors, published here for the first time.
Maurice Blanchot: The Demand of Writing is a crucial selection for all students of philosophy, literature or French studies.
From the Publisher:

A timely collection of essays, the first to be published in English on the work of Maurice Blanchot. One of the major thinkers of this century, Blanchot--a contemporary of Bataille and Levinas, whose work has influenced Derrida and Foucault, among others--demonstrates the radical philosophical import of literature and has renewed the debate over the ontological and ethical questions raised by works of art.

Commentators consider Blanchot from a variety of perspectives, including: Simon Critchley on Blanchot's "Il y a"; Rodolfe Gasche on the "Null Space of Literature"; Gillian Rose on death; a previously unpublished letter by Blanchot explaining his political position in the 1930s; Jeffrey Mehlman's "Pour Sainte Beuve" and Roger Laporte on Blanchot today. This is a crucial selection on a philosopher who commands widespread, fervent interest from students of philosophy, literature and French studies.
