The Instant of my death
Through out of reading the book of My Instant Death/Demeure by Maurice Blanchot & Jacques Derrida, It was little hard for me to get the concept of the book. However, I couldn’t give up on reading continuously to get what the writer points out. At the first time I saw the title of the book, I thought that the author used a word of death as physically ends; however, the author described the word as not only physical death but also emotional one. Emotional one could be more comprehended in philosophic idea.
It is hard for everyone to compare a book to another book, or criticize others based on your own thought. What can be fiction or non-fiction? I want to share my idea of them as long as I understood the book. Fiction is what we can make or create. We create everything imaginably as we want. But this might contains our knowledge or literatures. In compare, non-fiction is more like based on our experiences, truth and“testimony”; the author stated in the book that there is no testimony that does not structurally imply in itself the possibility of fiction.
