Professional Biography

By “literature” we should mean all that involves writing and reading without the boundaries and obscurity provoked by “scientific” approaches. Literature should not be considered a mere amusement or a hypocritical means to preserve an educated elite.

My publications reflect the wide scope of my interests in theory, art and literature. I will mention only a few books: La Disparue (récit, 1987); Solitudes, de Rimbaud à Heidegger (1989; trans. SUNY, 1995); La Chose même (1992); Tombeau de Trakl (1992);  C’est à dire: Poétique de Heidegger (1996; trans. as That Is to Say: Heidegger’s Poetics Stanford U.P, 1998); La Chimère. Tombeau de Nerval (2001); Incitations (2002). CV
