Short biography
Maurice Blanchot lived in Paris during the German Occupation of World War II, and was active in the French Resistance. In June 1944, shortly before the Liberation, he was close to being executed by the Nazis, which he described in his book The Instant of My Death. His work on the questions of language and meaning had a strong influence on post-war French literary theory and criticism.
