Appeared in Choice on 2011-08-01:
Jannarone (theater, Univ. of California, Santa Cruz) has written a remarkable book about Artaud (1896-1948) and the Theatre of Cruelty. Connecting Artaud's writings and theatrical work to the political, intellectual, and theatrical climate of his time, the author paints a vastly different portrait of Artaud, far removed from the romantic mystic and suffering artist portrayed in other studies. With chapters that highlight the disdain that Artaud had for rationalism and science, and drawing connections to the irrationalism and power for which he had an affinity, the author sets the stage for connecting Artaud's work and fascism. In analyzing crowds and crowd theory alongside theater for the masses, Jannarone illuminates the manipulative nature of Artaud's theater. In the last of the volume's three sections, the author highlights that manipulation in analyzing Artaud's actual practice in the theater as director of his own and others' plays. Ultimately Artaud's theater is violent and nonregenerative, a theater of revolution in which "violence is the governing principle, and ... is wielded by powerful men." This fascinating study should shake the foundations of Artaudian scholarship. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals. S. W. Cole Bridgewater College
