    The discourses of Max Blecher’s characters, in fact of the same auctorial mask endlessly multiplying, remind us of the philosophy promoted by Heidegger, Kierkegaard, Jaspers and Husserl. In order to understand Blecher’s character, we must start, just like Heidegger in Being and Time, from understanding the time he lives in. But the narrator-character’s time in Blecher’s novels is conceived starting from death. The analysis of death does not imply, for Heidegger, the study of what somebody really feels at the time of death, it involves the meaning of imminent death for someone enjoying life to the full.
