experience with the Tarahumara Indians in 1936 was a psychic ordeal
and a spiritual revelation. The images he brought back-the signs
and dance, the ritual slaughter of the bull and
the drinking of its blood, the echoes of Atlantis-were to haunt
him for the rest of his life. This mosaic work, written over a
period of twelve years and spanning Artaud's stay at the Hopital
Psychiatrique in Rodez, documents Artaud's struggle to integrate
an overwhelming mystical experience into his own religious and
mental being. (front cover)
