I wonder why this guy is studied so often. He's pretty much full of shit, and didn't produce anything anyone liked. His theories are pretty much meaningless, and though people often reference his influence, there were several people doing this kind of work both before and after who had a more specific grasp of what the result of their work would mean.
All that said, it was interesting to get this glimpse of his life... and much more fun with the cartoon enhancements. An Artaud coloring book woul

I have a thing for these 'For Beginners" series that I think originally came out of the U.K. The Artaud one is really good. It sort of gives you the major highlights of Artaud's life and work.... in comic book or manga form. Very well written with superb illustrations. Sort of a manual for those who are on the go. A very good book to read in the bathtub.
