Antonin Artaud's novelized biography of the third-century Roman Emperor Heliogabalus is both his most accessible and his most extreme book. Written in 1933, when Artaud was preparing his legendary Theatre of Cruelty, Heliogabalus is a powerful concoction of sexual excess, self-deification, and terminal violence. - Reflecting its author's preoccupation with the occult, magic, -Satan, and esoteric religions, the author assembles an entire world-view from the raw material of insanity, sexual obsession and anger

Artaud on theatre by Antonin Artaud( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antonin Artaud (1896-1948), along with Bertolt Brecht and Vsevolod Meyerhold, is one of the great visionaries of 20th -century theatre. An actor in French stage and screen productions during the 1920s and 1930s, Artaud fled the theatre following his own disastrous production of The Cenci in which he tried to encapsulate his ideas of what he called 'Theatre of Cruelty'. A life of peripatetic wanderings and endless writing followed. His later life was spent in a mental institution. Artaud's aim, as stated in the writings included in this volume, called for a return of the theatre to its roots in ritual and for transforming the audience through total emotional, psychic and physical involvement. Although his potent theories were never successfully realized in productions during his own tortured lifetime, Artaud's revolutionary ideas have inspired the work of Genet, Arrabal, The Living Theatre, Grotowski, Brook and most experimental drama and performance work of the last decades." "This volume contains all of Artaud's key writings on theatre and cinema from 1921 to his death in 1948, including new selections which have never appeared in English before. Together with an Introduction, biographical notes and commentary, the collection charts Artaud's work from his early association with surrealism, through his founding of the Theatre Alfred Jarry, to the invocation of his compelling vision in his most famous manifesto, The Theatre and its Double."--BOOK JACKET

The Cenci by Antonin Artaud( Book )

Shelley is one of the most revered figures in the English poetical landscape. Born on the 4th August 1792 he has, over the years, become rightly regarded as a major Romantic poet. Yet during his own lifetime little of his work was published. Publishers feared his radical views and possible charges against themselves for blasphemy and sedition. On 8th July 1822 a month before his 30th birthday, during a sudden storm, his tragic early death by drowning robbed our culture of many fine expected masterpieces. But in his short spell on earth he weaved much magic. The Cenci, A Tragedy in Five Acts was a verse play that Shelley tried to have performed at Covent Garden in his lifetime. He was unsuccessful despite the play being his only work to be published in a second edition and many acclaiming the work as a tragic masterpiece. He was inspired to dramatise this real life story of the tragic execution of a young Italian woman in 1599 for the pre meditated murder of her father after viewing a portrait of her, Beatrice Cenci by the painter Guido Reni. After seeing a performance of the play in 1886 George Bernard Shaw commented that: Shelley and Shakespeare are the only dramatists who have dealt in despair of this quality
