YEBENES ESCARDO, Zenia. The Case of Maurice Blanchot: Negativity, Death and Language Going Astray. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2007, n.18, pp.113-137. ISSN 2594-0619.

This article tries to delve into that relationship -which Heidegger called unexpected- between language and extreme negativity which is death. Through the reflections of Maurice Blanchot, the essay develops the conditions of the possibility of literature linked with language and truth; and also with what Blanchot called literature’s demand that has to do with death as long as the literary condition is that of dissolution of the subject that writes in a passive and radical negation: a falling apart in the vertiginous anonymity of language.
