THE THEATRE AND ITS DOUBLE by ANTONIN ARTAUD

I recently purchased a new book, and recently meaning an hour ago. Its called The Theater and its Double. It focuses on the historic events in the past that led theatre to where it is at today. “We cannon go on prostituting the idea of the theater, the only value of which is in its exercruciating, magical relation to reality and danger.” Artaud thought that theatre could be used as a link between writting and life. Its a very intersting book, and am on page 9. Great Read.

(The spelling of theatre was changed in 1975 from TheatER to TheatRE, for reasons unknown. So the book uses the spelling before 1975)
