Blanchot and the moving image

£45.00

Product description

***Sold as new, in near perfect condition***

No underlining, inscriptions or library stamps. Pages are clean and spine is un-creased. Price written in pencil on first blank page.

The French writer and philosopher Maurice Blanchot (1907-2003) was a notoriously reclusive figure who wrote that his life was entirely devoted to literature. Why then have filmmakers and writers on film found so much inspiration in Blanchot's work? Blanchot and the moving image explores a constellation of connections between Blanchot, film and film theory and draw lines of intellectual influence to show how Blanchot's thinking of literature find it's way by a kind of displacement into contemporary philosophical approaches to cinema. Three case studies examining individual films - by Jean-Luc Godard, Bela Tarr and Gaspar Noe - draw out how Blanchot's complex notions of fascination and image can contribute to theories of spectatorship. The first book-length treatment of this theme, Blanchot and the moving image thus demonstrates the overlooked importance of Blanchot's work for understanding contemporary film and film theory.

Lovingly sourced from donations and listed online by our shop volunteers at Oxfam bookshop, Byres Road.
