Writing, madness and anarchy

"Writing for (Artaud) wasn't a means of modifying or falsifying experience through the medium of language, it was the chace to communicate directly with his sense of outrage. It was a form of primal anarchy. If we all communicated without the selective process of language identifying with thought, the world would be reinvented."

"Madness is the perogative term that capitalism applies to vision."

"Literature died when it became a saleable commoditiy."

Jeremy Reed, Chasing Black Rainbows: a novel based on the life of Artaud, Peter Owen, 1994
