Synopsis : Antonin Artaud (1896-1948) was a stage and film actor, director, writer, drug addict, and visual artist. This volume presents two texts translated into English which describe Artaud's drawings and portraits. In one, Jacques Derrida examines the works that he first saw on the walls of Paule Thevenin's apartment. His text struggles with Artaud's language and is punctuated by footnotes and asides that reflect this strain ("How will they translate this?"). The more straightforward text of Paule Thevenin describes the history of Artaud's drawings and portraits. Due to a dispute between Artaud's heirs and Paule Thevenin, the book does not contain reproductions of Artaud's artwork. Instead, there is a series of photographs of Artaud by Georges Pastier. "We won't be describing any paintings," says Derrida in the text, which is addressed to that which underlies both language and art.
A propos de l'auteur: Jacques Derrida's many books on philosophy, art, literature, and other subjects include Writing and Difference, Grammatology, Spurs, Glas, Limited Inc, Signsponge, The Truth in Painting, and The Post Card. The late Paule Thévenin was the editor of many of Antonin Artaud's works and the person who best knew him and his work. Mary Ann Caws is Distinguished Professor of English, French, and Comparative Literature at the Graduate School, City University of New York. She is the author, editor, and translator of some thirty books on the twentieth-century avant-garde, including The Surrealist Look (MIT Press, 1997) and Surrealism and Women (MIT Press, 1991).
