Antonin Artaud (1896-1948) conceived and inaugurated the Theater of Cruelty, a dramatic movement that has had a profound influence on the avant garde theater in Europe and the United States. The movement is exemplified by the Peter Brook production of Marat-Sade. This book, the first to analyze Artaud’s theories, their sources, and the extent to which he succeeded in implementing them in his own plays, is now available in a 2017 digital edition, readily accessible to scholars and interested fans of literary criticism and the modern theater worldwide. The new edition adds a thoughtful Foreword by Professor Peter Thompson of Roger Williams University.Originally published by the University of Chicago Press, the book is brought to a new generation by Quid Pro Books. Quality ebook features include proper formatting, linked table of contents and footnotes, and even a fully linked subject matter index.
