Selected Writings by Antonin Artaud

"Selected Writings" is a compilation of texts from a seminal figure in the avant-garde theater and literary world, known for his radical ideas on the performance arts and the role of the artist in society. This collection showcases the author's diverse literary output, including manifestos, plays, letters, and essays that delve into his Theatre of Cruelty concept, which sought to disrupt the complacency of the audience and challenge the boundaries of conventional theatre. The writings reflect his tumultuous life, marked by mental illness and profound philosophical inquiry, and his influential thoughts on the interplay between reality and illusion, the body and the psyche, and the potential of art to reveal the deepest truths of the human condition.
