Reed here achieves a remarkable feat of imaginative empathy while exploring the mind of french avantgarde poet and playwright Antonin Artaud (1896-1948). A remarkable feat of imaginative empathy.... A tormented, emaciated, raving paranoid and diagnosed schizophrenic, Artaud emerges here also as an anarchic visionary who subverts bourgeois values through the power of his imagination. . . . A hypnotic exploration of madness and genius that articulates uncanny psychological insights.... Astonishing imagery."" - Publishers Weekly.
