There are several individuals I would like to thank. First, I must express
my gratitude to Ann Smock, David Meltzer and Lyn Hejinian for their helpful
suggestions on the work itself. I also thank Gary Hill for invaluable
information about his work's relation to Blanchot, and Pierre Joris for
telling me about Blanchot on the World Wide Web. I would like to thank
Claire Dinsmore as well, for posting this work on her Blanchot page. Additionally
I thank Jono Schneider and Sharon Coleman for the conversation about Blanchot.
I am also indebted to the Doe Library of UC Berkeley for access to its
resources and study space. Lastly, but far from least, I thank my family
for their support.
