Blanchot, Maurice
▪ 2004

      French novelist and critic (b. Sept. 27, 1907, Quain, France—d. Feb. 20, 2003, Mesnil Saint Denis, France), was a reclusive intellectual who influenced such postmodernist thinkers as Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, and Roland Barthes; he also supported new writers, including Samuel Beckett and Alain Robbe-Grillet. Though Blanchot wrote for right-wing journals before World War II, after the war he opposed the French occupation of Algeria, and he joined the antigovernment demonstrations in 1968. He was associated with Jean-Paul Sartre on Les Temps Modernes and wrote a monthly column for La Nouvelle Revue Française (1953–68).
