I find this obsession with the academic and non-academic divide   
troubling.  I can think of nowhere in Blanchot's writings any attack on   
academics.  Perhaps the only place he does discuss it is at the beginning   
of Infinite Conversation,  but even there he says that it is important   
and he in no way wishes to deny it.  This is not to say there is nothing   
wrong with universities and that there isn't any bad academic writing,   
but I imagine there is bad poetry as well
