Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I am the man,” wrote Artaud, “who has best charted his inmost self.” Antonin Artaud was a great poet who, like Poe, Holderlin, and Nerval, wanted to live in the infinite and asked that the human spirit burn in absolute freedom.

To society, he was a madman. Artaud, however, was not insane but in luciferian pursuit of what society keeps hidden. The man who wrote Van Gogh the Man Suicided by Society raged against the insanity of social institutions with insight that proves more prescient with every passing year. Today, as Artaud’s vatic thunder still crashes above the “larval confusion” he despised, what is most striking in his writings is an extravagant lucidity.

This collection gives us quintessential Artaud on the occult, magic, the theater, mind and body, the cosmos, rebellion, and revolution in its deepest sense.

Artaud lives in his fantasies and flaunts his so called madness. This anthology serves as an doorway to his insight and perception. He seeks to prove that the real and the unreal are immaterial, there can be no true distinction. Even our most illusory dreams and recollections are as concrete as the ground beneath us. I couldn't recommend this more highly.
