I’m writing a dissertation on problems of community and inoperativity in late 20th century French poetry. Through readings of poetic works by Edmond Jabès, André du Bouchet, Anne-Marie Albiach and Claude Royet-Journoud, I try to analyse and elaborate on what I call a poetics of collective disoccupation in the French poetry of the period. I do this in critical dialogue with theoretical works on community “in the negative” by Blanchot, Nancy and Agamben among others.
