The space of literature by Maurice Blanchot( Book )

163 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maurice Blanchot, the eminent literary and cultural critic, has had a vast influence on contemporary French writers#x14;among them Jean Paul Sartre and Jacques Derrida. From the 1930s through the present day, his writings have been shaping the international literary consciousness. The Space of Literature, first published in France in 1955, is central to the development of Blanchot's thought. In it he reflects on literature and the unique demand it makes upon our attention. Thus he explores the process of reading as well as the nature of artistic creativity, all the while considering the relation of the literary work to time, to history, and to death. This book consists not so much in the application of a critical method or the demonstration of a theory of literature as in a patiently deliberate meditation upon the literary experience, informed most notably by studies of Mallarme;, Kafka, Rilke, and H̲lderlin. Blanchot's discussions of those writers are among the finest in any language
The book to come by Maurice Blanchot( Book )

120 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,344 WorldCat member 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

L'amitié by Maurice Blanchot( Book )

48 editions published between 1971 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La amistad, esa relación sin dependencia, sin episodio, y donde, no obstante, cabe toda la sencillez de la vida, pasa por el reconocimiento de la extrañeza común que no nos permite hablar de nuestros amigos, sino sólo hablarles, no hacer de ellos un tema de conversación (o de artículos), sino el movimiento del convenio de que, hablándonos, reservan, incluso en la mayor familiaridad, la distancia infinita, esa separación fundamental a partir de la cual lo que separa se convierte en relación. La desaparición de Georges Bataille se convierte para Maurice Blanchot en ocasión de pensar la amistad ligada a la inminencia de la muerte; de soportar la proximidad del amigo en el reconocimiento de una extrañeza paradójicamente común. A partir de la ausencia de centro que es para Blanchot la escritura, los ensayos que componen La amistad buscan hacerse cargo del movimiento infinito de la literatura y del "insensato juego de escribir". Sus temas van de la tarea del traductor al nacimiento del arte; del comunismo a la transgresión; del judaísmo al problema del lenguaje. Y hacen este recorrido leyendo a los escritores en sus obras y en su compañía: con Kafka y Char, Camus y Duras, Leiris y Paulhan, Bataille y Klossowski. En "la amistad libre, desapegada de todo lazo."
