Reviews

'Ros Murray's engaging book offers an excellent survey across significant aspects of Antonin Artaud's ouevre, and outlines a clear set of principles that underpinned his creative energies. Starting with the premise that Artaud's work attempted to locate the origins of thought in the body, and considering the implications of this for his art, Murray seeks to put different disciplinary approaches and perspectives in dialogue as she approaches his output in various media. With an eye always on how the body and the text interact, Artaud's relationship with language is scrutinised, giving the reader a useful set of approaches to his activities that contextualises, clarifies and facilitates our continued engagement with that varied, challenging and expressive body of work.' - Mark Taylor-Batty, University of Leeds, UK
