Seller Rating:. Dimensions 12,5 x 19,0 x 1,7 cm. Poids grammes. Gallimard, Collection l'imaginaire. Seller Inventory AJ More information about this seller Contact this seller 1. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The world of Aminadab, Maurice Blanchot's second novel, is dark, bizarre, and fantastic.
Reminiscent of Kafka's enclosed and allegorical spaces, Aminadab is both a reconstruction and a deconstruction of power, authority, and hierarchy. The novel opens when Thomas, upon seeing a woman gesture to him from a window of a large boarding house, enters the building and slowly becomes embroiled in its inscrutable workings. Although Thomas is constantly reassured that he can leave the building, he seems to be separated forever from the world he has left behind.
The story consists of Thomas's frustrated attempts to clarify his status as a resident in the building and his misguided interactions with the cast of sickly, depraved, or in some way deformed characters he meets, none of them ever quite what they seem to be. Aminadab, the man who according to legend guards the entrance to the building's underground spaces, is only one of the mysteries reified by the rumors circulating among the residents.
Written in a prose that is classical and at times lyrical, Blanchot's novel functions as an allegory referring, above all, to the wandering and striving movement of writing itself.

Book a book
Some books can be reread many times without seeing the same thing twice. Maurice Blanchot's early novel, Aminadab , is one of those books. This first translation of the novel into English is a literary gem, though of course whether it should be considered a ruby, emerald or diamond is open to interpretation. Aminadab follows the story of Thomas who, after seeing someone wave to him from the upper balcony of a rooming house, enters the building to find the woman who signaled him. He is confronted at every turn by strange characters, all resigned to their situations which is either melancholy or delightful depending on the point of view. These characters in turn weave a series of tales that build up the myth and mystery that is the house. Thomas, who soon sees himself as a tenant of the building, explores the house as best he can, as best ANYONE can considering the nebulous nature of the structure and its inhabitants.
Maurice Blanchot may hardly be a household name in America, but in some circles he is one of the essential writers of the 20th century Every sentence of Aminadab is an invitation to think, about language, about responsibility, about life. Blanchot's density requires us to slow down our reading; he makes us pause, grow uncomfortable. Yet we are taken by Blanchot's seerlike ability to penetrate to the core of some of the darker aspects of the 20th century. Written in a prose that is classical and at times lyrical, Blanchot's novel functions as an allegory referring, above all, to the wandering and striving movement of writing itself. Du kanske gillar.

Aminadab by Maurice Blanchot
Blanchot b. With humor and insight, Straub creates a family worth rooting for. When Astrid Strick witnesses a school bus run over a longtime acquaintance of hers—Barbara Baker, a woman she doesn't like very much—it's only the beginning of the shake-ups to come in her life and the lives of those she loves. Astrid has been tootling along contentedly in the Hudson Valley town of Clapham, New York, a year-old widow with three grown children. After many years of singlehood since her husband died, she's been quietly seeing Birdie Gonzalez, her hairdresser, for the past two years, and after Barbara's death she determines to tell her children about the relationship: "There was no time to waste, not in this life.
