By Anne McConnell

Maurice Blanchot (1907-2003), probably the most influential figures of twentieth-century French literature, produced a wide selection of essays and fictions that consider the complexities of literary paintings. His description of writing constantly returns to a few subject matters, akin to solitude, passivity, indifference, anonymity, and absence—forces confronting the author, but in addition the reader, the textual content itself, and the family among the 3. For Blanchot, literature includes a stream towards disappearance, the place one dangers the lack of self; yet this kind of sacrifice, says Blanchot, is inherent within the act of writing. Approaching Disappearance explores the query of disappearance in Blanchot's serious paintings after which turns to 5 narratives that supply a different mirrored image at the possibility of disappearance and the calls for of literature—work by way of Franz Kafka, Jorge Luis Borges, Louis-René Des Forêts, and Nathalie Sarraute.
