Editorial Reviews

Review

In all, De Vos leaves us with a much different sense of the Theater of Cruelty than we may be used to. Artaud’s concepts and the difficulties in presenting them onstage permeate all sections of the book. But this only further strengthens his claims that Artuad’s mark can be seen on Kane and Beckett. All three playwrights, and their characters, struggle with the difficulty of creating an individual identity in worlds dominated by language, but Beckett and Kane provide examples of how differently this struggle can be manifested.
(Comparative Drama)
