New Blanchot collection

For those of you with French, Chroniques littéraires du Journal des débats: Avril 1941-août 1944 is a new, 685-page collection from Gallimard of weekly reviews written by Blanchot.

A third of the reviews have already appeared in the English translation of Faux Pas and this collects the rest. It includes pieces on, among others, Dante, Rabelais, Descartes, Blake, Joyce, Mallarmé and Valéry.

The rest of us will have to wait for a translation :(


  1. Part of me wishes all the good writers would get together and agree on a single language to write in. A petulant, short-sighted part, but still.

  2. Good idea, unless they choose Finnish or Welsh ...

  3. Finnish: the name that strikes fear into the heart of language students everywhere, probably even in Finland.

  4. for $100/day, i'll gladly do it, for about three years.
