Download A Voice From Elsewhere (Suny Series, Insinuations by Maurice Blanchot PDF

By Maurice Blanchot

Reflections at the enigma and mystery of “literature.”

“This welcome new quantity, superbly translated, is an important addition to our library of Blanchot in English.” — Lydia Davis

“Maurice Blanchot committed himself to what Henry James known as ‘the strangeness within the strangeness.’ A Voice from in other places speaks of what's irreducibly unusual in poetry and philosophy in a language of calm simplicity. those typically past due items by way of a author and philosopher of the 1st rank are as piercing as they're deeply moving.” — Kevin Hart

“Here is a quantity of Maurice Blanchot’s commentaries on poems by means of Louis-René des Forêts, René Char, and Paul Celan, along with his celebrated account of Michel Foucault’s œuvre. In each one case Blanchot reveals himself obsessed by way of ‘a voice from elsewhere’—a voice that's without delay intimate, wordless, and uninhabited: los angeles voix de personne, no-one’s voice. those commentaries, beautifully translated through Charlotte Mandell, are themselves constituted by way of this voice, a natural reverberation that readers of Blanchot’s writings won't have forgotten. they'll say: so the following he's, if he ever was.” ― Gerald L. Bruns
