Artaud et l’asile

 

Description

Here it is at last, the edited and improved reprint of the work that put an end to the fancy interpretations of the illness and of the confinement of Antonin Artaud. The book offers a vivid portrait of Dr. Ferdière, evokes the memories of the last survivors of Rodez and of a few specialists in psychiatry, then at its early stage. It includes thirteen unpublished letters of Mrs Artaud and sixteen unpublished texts and letters of Artaud himself. A very accurate investigation based upon the medical files of Rodez to which, for a long time, the general public and the specialists were denied access.
