The Disappearance of Literature

Aaron Hillyer

In this book Aaron Hillyer considers the implications of Maurice Blanchots strange formulation: Literature is heading to its essence, which is its disappearance. This quest leads Hillyer to stage a dialogue between the works of Blanchot and Giorgio Agamben. Despite being primary points of reference for literary theory, no significant critical work has examined their literary writings together. The Disappearance of Literature initiates this new trajectory through readings of Blanchots The Unavowable Community and Agambens The Open, two short books that harbor their most enigmatic writings. A series of related concepts-study, community, mysticism, and friendship-emerges from this pairing, and, Hillyer argues, forms the basis of a new vein of contemporary literature found in the novels and hybrid fictions of Enrique Vila-Matas, Anne Carson, and Cesar Aira.

Disappearance Quotes (37 quotes) - Goodreads In actual fact the disappearance of someone is exactly everyone’s cue to get out and search, and keep searching and not stop until there’s dirt under their fingernails and wretchedness in their souls from the number of rocks they have pushed aside to see whether I’m under one of them.
