I just re-read a little of this. After finishing Strip City I wanted something to read while hanging around the house one day but couldn't decide what to start next so I went with a little out of Theatre. It is one of my all time favorite peices of writing.
I've picked this book apart so many times that this time I decided just to enjoy the words. Artaud had a way with words that I haven't found anyone else close to.
Take for example this paragraph from The Theatre and The Plague (my personal favorite)...
"A social disaster so far-reaching, an organic disorder so mysterious--this overflow of vices, this total exorcism which presses and impels the soul to its utmost--all indicate the presence of a state which is nevertheless characterized by extreme strength and in which all the powers of nature are freashly discovered at the moment when something essential is going to be accomplished."
