TheMoreIn 1968, Michel Foucault agreed to a series of interviews with critic Claude Bonnefoy, which were to be published in book form.

Bonnefoy wanted a dialogue with Foucault about his relationship to writing rather than about the content of his books. The project was abandoned, but a transcript of the initial interview survived and is now being published for the first time in English. In this brief and lively exchange, Foucault reflects on how he approached the written word throughout his life, from his school days to his discovery of the pleasure of writing.Wide ranging, characteristically insightful, and unexpectedly autobiographical, the discussion is revelatory of Foucaults intellectual development, his aims as a writer, his clinical methodology (lets say Im a diagnostician), and his interest in other authors, including Raymond Roussel and Antonin Artaud.

Foucault discloses, in ways he never had previously, details about his home life, his family history, and the profound sense of obligation he feels to the act of writing. In his Introduction, Philippe Artieres investigates Foucaults engagement in various forms of oral discourse--lectures, speeches, debates, press conferences, and interviews--and their place in his work.Speech Begins after Death shows Foucault adopting a new language, an innovative autobiographical communication that is neither conversation nor monologue, and is one of his most personal statements about his life and writing.
