This is an outstanding overview of Blanchot's importance to contemporary literary theory. Blanchot's literary criticism has imposed itself within the canon and syllabi of modern poetics and literary theory, and yet it has maintained a somewhat mysterious presence. This is in part due to its almost hypnotic literary style, in part to its distinctive amalgam of a number of philosophical sources (Hegel, Bataille, Levinas, and Heidegger) which, although hardly unknown in the Anglophone philosophical world, have not yet made themselves fully at home in literary theory. "Blanchot and Literary Criticism" undertakes to remedy this situation, providing an accessible guide to Blanchot's thought and making a case for its relevance to contemporary literary theory and criticism. In doing so, it offers an engaging introduction to the many intersections of European literary modernism and continental philosophy.

offers erudite analyses of several texts in which Maurice Blanchot approaches works by modern' writers. [ ] Hewson's studies are models of good scholarship and often bring great insight, albeit to quite familiar terrain. The individual studies of Blanchot's work on Holderlin and Mallarme are extremely welcome additions to the field and provide an excellent resource for scholars seeking to orient themselves in these complex areas.
