Format: Hardcover
this book floored me. this was the first of artaud's books that i have picked up. what a fascinating guy! in this book he writes of his experiences with some red skinned indigenous people in the mountains of mexico. the people he encounters are so 'unevolved" from an ignorant western perspective. they are without technology or science as we know it and yet they have existed untouched by modern man for eons. how could this be? well, like many indigenous peoples they use shamanic healing ceremonies in which their leader eats peyote in order to reach an altered state of being. in this altered state profound visions are seen, visions that can help and heal the community. artaud gets initiated into their tribe over the course of his visit, takes peyote, starts tripping, and all the while keeps on writing....his words, his thoughts definately span the entire spectrum: from intriguing diary-like passages, to all-out madman raving, cursing at our sophisticated society that by his comparison is the weaker, un-evolved and lost to no end. he also writes with little punctuation in a stream of consiousness style that is fluid and mind-blowing. this is a brilliant mind, a troubled soul, a questioning spirit. read his words. get lost in his visions. he is seeking, as we all our at some time in our lives. read this book. you'll forget where you are. you'll remember something deeper. on the "other side of the veil" before life and after death, there is much to be gained. whether that state of being is achieved through psychotropic drugs or meditation or dreamstate...there is something to be gained. start your search here, with this book, and keep going deeper.
