"Blanchot describes a world where the Absolute
has finally overcome all other rivals to its authority.
The State is unified, universal, and homogenous,
promising perfect satisfaction.
Why then does it find revolt everywhere?
Could it be the omnipresent police? The plagues?
The proliferating prisons and black markets?
Written in part as a description of post-World War II Europe,
Blanchot's dystopia charts with terrible clarity the
endless death of god in an era of constantly metamorphosing
but strangely definitive ideologies."-Translation Review
