Heliogabalus; or, the Crowned Anarchist

Translated into English for the first time this novelized biography of the rd century Roman Emperor Heliogabalus is simultaneously Artaud s most accessible and his most extreme book Written in at the time when Artaud was preparing to stage his legendary Theatre of Cruelty Heliogabalus is a powerful concoction of sexual excess self deification and terminal violence Reflecting its author s preoccupations with the occult magic Satan and a range of esoteric religions this account of Heliogabalus reign invents incidents in the Emperor s life in order to make the print of the author s own passionate denunciations of modern existence p Heliogabalus is Artaud s greatest and most revolutionary masterpiece an incendiary work that reveals both the divine cruelty of the Roman Emperor and that of Artaud himself Stephen Barber p


Van Gogh: Il suicidato della società

Come un inondazione di corvi neri nelle fibre del suo albero interno la societ suicid van Gogh Non fu dunque il pittore a soccombere a un suo delirio ma un delirio ben pi vasto e maligno l affatturamento capillare che la prima opera della societ stessa a farlo soccombere Non si creda per che qui Artaud anticipi le innumerevoli accuse alla societ cattiva e oppressiva che hanno ammorbato i nostri anni Artaud come sempre ben pi radicale Non gli basta il predominio di una classe sull altra o la malvagit del denaro per inchiodare la societ Ma la i magia nera i della societ stessa l universale fattura che essa fa agire su tutti a essere chiamata qui da Artaud con il suo nome questa la prima e insuperata forma di crimine organizzato che ci governa Van Gogh e come lui G rard de Nerval o Artaud stesso stavano per sottrarsi alle maglie di quella fattura ma ne furono alla fine catturati di nuovo come vittime preziose di cui spartirsi le spoglie Un anno prima di morire nel Artaud affront van Gogh raccontando la sua funebre e rivoltante storia di garrottato da uno spirito malvagio e illuminando con la luce barbagliante delle sue frasi spezzate ci che significa la maledizione dell artista il nemico occulto del suo i opus i In fondo ai suoi occhi come depilati da beccaio van Gogh si abbandonava senza tregua a una di quelle operazioni di oscura alchimia che hanno preso la natura per oggetto e il corpo umano per marmitta o crogiolo


L'Ombilic des Limbes suivi de Le Pèse-nerfs et autres textes

Quand on a lu Artaud on ne s en remet pas Ses textes sont de ceux tr s rares qui peuvent orienter et innerver toute une vie influer directement ou indirectement sur la mani re de sentir et de penser r gler une conduite subversive travers toutes sortes de sentiments de pr jug s et de tabous qui l int rieur de notre culture contribuent freiner et m me arr ter un lan fondamental Exceptionnel cet gard puisque son uvre ne cesse de susciter des questions auxquelles il semble aujourd hui encore impossible d apporter des r ponses pr cises Artaud ne peut tre consid r ni comme un crivain ni comme un po te ni comme un acteur ni comme un metteur en sc ne ni comme un th oricien mais comme un homme qui a tent d chapper toutes ces d finitions et auquel la soci t dans laquelle nous vivons a oppos la plus grande r sistance la plus grande surdit la plus grande r pression possible br Alain Jouffroy


Pour en finir avec le jugement de dieu

Pour en finir avec le jugement de dieu est sans doute le livre d Antonin Artaud qui lib re le plus violemment cette voix forcen e cette voix de fureur et de fi vre qui appara t comme l ultime tat l ultime clat de sa parole de po te La po sie prend ici la forme d une prof ration d une vaticination mais loin de vouloir faire entendre le message inspir ou impos un oracle par un dieu quelconque Artaud entreprend de transcrire les mots les balbutiements les cris comme s ils taient directement engendr s par le corps souffrant bris tortur d un m dium qui refuse toute intervention transcendante Ce dont t moigne ce livre c est d une r volte ontologique r volte radicale qui s affranchit de tous les recours de tous les secours de toutes les croyances pour s en tenir aux seules sonorit s aux seuls timbres aux seules vibrations des choses Le timbre a des volumes des masses de souffles et de tons qui forcent la vie sortir de ses rep res et lib rer surtout ce soi disant au del qu elle nous cache et qui n est pas dans l astral mais ici


The Peyote Dance

Artaud received a grant to travel to Mexico where he met his first Mexican Parisian friend the Painter Federico Cant in when he gave lectures on the decadence of Western civilization He also studied and lived with the Tarahumaran people and experimented with peyote recording his experiences which were later released in a volume called Voyage to the Land of the Tarahumara The content of this work closely resembles the poems of his later days concerned primarily with the supernatural Artaud also recorded his horrific withdrawal from heroin upon entering the land of the Tarahumaras having deserted his last supply of the drug at a mountainside he literally had to be hoisted onto his horse and soon resembled in his words a giant inflamed gum Artaud would return to opiates later in life
