Jacques Derrida writes in Deconstruction and Criticism of The Madness of the Day that it is a story whose title runs wild and drives the reader mad. La folie du jour is a story of madness, of that madness that consists in seeing the light, vision or visibility, to see beyond what is visible, is not merely 'to have a vision' in the usual sense of the word, but to see-beyond-sight, to see-sight-beyond-sight..
The story obscures the sun. Read more Read less. About the Author Maurice Blanchot is one of the most enigmatic and influential figures in modern French writing yet no interview, no biographical sketch, and hardly any photographs have ever been published of him. His work encompasses the writing of novels and recits as well as articles and books of philosophical or to be precise anti-philosophical criticism.
He is one of the few significant theorists of literature of the last century to have worked outside a university context, yet for fifty years, he has been the most consistent champion of modern literature and its tradition in French letters.

Strange, subtle, maddening; in the rigmarole of the ongoing days. Though all are quite different, the feel this little book has reminded me of a couple of other things: Unica Zurn's 'The house of illnesses', and Leonora Carrington's 'Down Below'.

Madness of the Day by Maurice Blanchot
Fictional Leaders pp Cite as. This is something we all know and it is a process that fiction as well as a great deal of management literature implicitly tries to deny by evoking a meaningfulness-in-itself that does not refer to lived processes of relatedness. Based on Blanchot, we go here a step further, claiming that leadership is an iconic exemplar of this process. Like narrative itself, leadership is inherently connected to the glorification of accountability, purposefulness and goal-directed orientations.

Madness of the Day demands to be watched, but then, I would think that. Mystified too — how on earth could I have spent 15 years living in Melbourne going to the theatre with the fervour of a fanatic and be writing this now? It was the experience of seeing it performed — soliloquies, one-man shows, how I love them — that made me come back to Geneva and buy the English translation. The haziness of the experience of reading it and recognising chunks of it, but not sure if it was all as in the show, not least because it was over 40C in the shade the night we saw it, made me write to La Mama and ask. The theatre work was an extrapolation of the ideas within the original text by Maurice Blanchot. We were inspired by the story and the combination of its narrative with the situation that we created. I greatly regret not being able to go back to see this production again — unfortunately we waited until the last night of its run — it was incredibly moving to see it placed in a context, given life by John Flaus, a virtuoso performance in unenviable conditions that make me call it a heroic one also.
