Italian term or phrase: errante
Parlando sempre di Blanchot e del suo concetto di "parola al limite", come tradurreste "errante"? In precedenza parla dell' errante inteso come "di chi va, di chi oltrepassa i propri confini, dove non c’è possibilità di essere perché ci sono", ma non penso che in questo contesto si riferisca a questo:

L' ’opera prende vita dall’assenza, dal non più: dal mutamento, dalla metamorfosi di sé – dice Blanchot – che ha generato, nel frattempo, un’altra storia, un altro individuo. Solo dall’oblio di ciò che “si è stati” è possibile “operare”. Operare è, allora, una “prova” in itinere, errante, di un fare e di un dire – prova che resta indeterminata perché il suo fine non è né segnare, né tracciare.
