Antonin Artaud was very influential in the changing the theatre from psychological drama stories to the wide range it has today.

He has also given us a view of 'madness' (for which he spent 9ish years in various asylums) from a very intelligent and literate point of view.

and Bauhaus wrote a song about him.

This is without a doubt the most accurate written encounter with madness that I have come across. Not only that, it accounts for the madness that is writing; what it takes to want to write and the effects on he who commits himself to that aim. I wish there were some more substantial examples of his prose floating about somewhere, for the only criticism I have of this collection is that there is no one large work. If you would rather read about someone else's pain as opposed to creating your own, then this is certainly the book for you. If you wish to enhance any pain you might be feeling, then this book is also recommended.
