How much do we love Stephen Barber’s works on Antonin Artaud? My God. He’s right up there with Mary Ann Caws, Martin Esslin and Florence de Mèredieu in my gratitude for his and their research and translations of Artaud, Breton, and Desnos. My next purchase: A Sinister Assassin: Antonin Artaud’s Last Writings, September 1947-March 1948!
Mary Ann Caws is one of the best sources on the lives of Robert Desnos, Antonin Artaud, Andre Breton, and other surrealists and former surrealists. Here she reviews a book by another amazing scholar of Artaud, Stephen Barber. Antonin Artaud: Terminal Curses: The Notebooks, 1945-48 by Stephen Barber
