AMARAL, Alberto  and  SOUZA, Debora. The writing, the silence of literature predictable in blanchotian thought. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.1, pp.120-148. ISSN 2238-152X.

The present text seeks to draw a dialogue based on the notion of writing, silence of the Blanchotian literature of thought, in which this writing is presented as an irreplaceable literature. But what would be a non-extendable writing? Maurice Blanchot, in his tessitura, shows us from his essay texts that writing is to make of the thing an image that, far from representing it, portrays its absence, its impossibility to be always the same, its instability in time And its lack of significance. Writing, therefore, is denouncing the emptiness that hides behind every word. We deal in this text with a rather special conception of writing that is this Improrable literature, which resists the dark times experienced in our day. This idea was outlined in this work through the Blanchotian conceptions that in this article we call an Improrable literature, questioning the important figure of the writer, or the author, considering that Maurice Blanchot makes no distinction between the two terms. It disappears, in its conventional sense. The author is dead. But who writes? In the blanchotiano sense, the death of the author is related to the absence of the all-powerful conductor who speaks the language of dictare. That is, to produce the discourse that calls for obedience and offers rest, "which only demands docility and promises the great repose of inner deafness".

Keywords : Writing; Death; Silence; Impossibility.
