Into Disaster

Chronicles of Intellectual Life, 1941


Maurice Blanchot and Translated by Michael Holland

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Blanchot had an enormous impact on most of the French thinkers who have been influential on American theoretical thinking in the latter quarter of the twentieth-century and since.
  • Into Disaster is the first volume of uncollected essays. They start almost a year into the German Occupation of France, when Blanchot begins to write a weekly newspaper column in which the propects for French literature and culture, following what he terms the disaster, are lucidly and unflinchingly explored.
