This chapter discusses the concept of intrigue in Maurice Blanchot's Au moment voulu. Blanchot defines intrigue as an inextricable relation between at least two human beings and he uses the term to refer to the “relation of the third type” and to the “exigency of speech” when faced with the strangeness of language. This chapter examines how the outside interrupts the order of meaning, the order of the world ceases to be the guarantor of intelligibility and the present is not the ruling temporal instance.

Keywords:   Maurice Blanchot, Au moment voulu, intrigue, order of meaning, language, speech, intelligibility
