L'Arrêt de mort by Maurice Blanchot (Fr.)
This product is currently sold out.
Early Gallimard edition of Blanchot's L'Arrêt de Mort ("Death Warrant"). Writer, philosopher, and literary theorist Maurice Blanchot's second novel, "L'Arrêt de Mort" is a formally- and conceptually-knotted work of writing Roland Barthes termed "appearance as disappearance." Blanchot plays with his "secret law" of narration to treat both the narrator and narrated like the bait and trap for a site of discursive meaning, demonstrating the novel as that space for signification––prior to any determination of meaning.
