When the Time Comes

When the Time Comes

Maurice Blanchot

WHEN THE TIME COMES ostensibly chronicles the troubled relations between the narrator - a very ill man - and the two women whose lives he invades. As in all of Blanchot’s intensely subjective fiction, the true subject of the work is the narrator’s consciousness and the process by which his tale emerges through its telling. Powerfully affected by the slightest of events, the narrator responds with a violence that, most disturbingly, appears inevitable.
