INSTITUTION WITH IMPOSSIBILITY. 'THE BOOK OF QUESTIONS', SURREALISM AND THE HOLOCAUST (Naznaczenie niemozliwoscia. 'Ksiega Pytan', surrealizm i Holokaust)
Languages of publication
Reception of 'The Book of Questions', a seven-volume poem by Edmond Jabes, has been primarily set by interpretations of Jacques Derrida and Maurice Blanchot. Is this right, in each case? Especially, in the reading by the author of Différance, a few questions seem worth clarifying or complementing. Questions appear about the unobvious autobiographism of 'The Book of Questions' and about what Jabes says on Holocaust and its place in the Jewish history; about the opposition between the language and the construction of the work; and, about surrealism as an important reference point in the poet's artistic itinerary.
