Artaud being one of those people I knew about by the time I was 22, much of what I've read by & thought about him belongs to my personal ancient history. Skimming thru this bk again to refresh my memory makes me realize how deeply Artaud's influence runs thru things that've interested me since. EG: in Peter Brook's adaption of Peter Weir's "Marat/Sade" - an amazing film that I rewatched recently & found as potent as ever. Artaud himself played Marat in Abel Gance's film re Napoleon. R. D. Laing was also influenced by Artaud. & then there's the whole notion of Van Gogh "suicided by suicide" - something I understand all too well. All in all, reading Artaud is probably not enuf - reading this bk will help put him even more in perspective.
