Le livre à venir by Maurice Blanchot ( Book )
66 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 710 libraries worldwide
"Le secret de la littérature, la littérature comme exigence et comme sens et sa voie à venir se trouvent au centre de ces recherches. Avec un savoir passionné et anxieux, il nous est parlé de Proust, d'Artaud, de Broch, de Musil, de Henry James, de Samuel Beckett, de Mallarmé, de plusieurs autres et même de celui qui sera, un jour, le dernier écrivain. Mais peut-être, plus que des auteurs et des livres, est-il question ici du mouvement d'où viennent tous les livres et qui détient, d'une manière encore cachée, l'avenir de la communication et la communication comme avenir.
The writing of the disaster = (L'ecriture du désastre) by Maurice Blanchot ( Book )
43 editions published between 1980 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 702 libraries worldwide
Modern history is haunted by the disasters of the century: world wars, concentration camps, Hiroshima, and the Holocaust - grief, anger, terror, and loss beyond words, but still close, still impending. How can we write or think about disaster when by its very nature it defies speech and compels silence, burns books and shatters meaning? The Writing of the Disaster reflects upon efforts to abide in disaster's infinite threat. First published in French in 1980, it takes up the most serious tasks of writing: to describe, explain and redeem when possible, and to admit what is not possible. Neither offers consolation. Maurice Blanchot has been praised on both sides of the Atlantic for his fiction and criticism. The philosopher Emmanuel Levinas once remarked that Blanchot's writing is a "language of pure transcendence, without correlative." Literary theorist and critic Geoffrey Hartman remarked that Blanchot's influence on contemporary writers "cannot be overestimated."

42 editions published between 1948 and 2011 in French and English and held by 403 libraries worldwide
Blanchot describes a world where the Absolute has finally overcome all other rivals to its authority. The State is unified, universal, and homogeneous, promising perfect satisfaction. Why then does it find revolt everywhere? Could it be the omnipresent police? The plagues? The proliferating prisons and black markets? Written in part as a description of post-World War II Europe, Blanchot's dystopia charts with terrible clarity the endless death of god in an era of constantly metamorphosing but strangely definitive ideologies.
