” No longer to be in command of one’s anger,
to be reduced to looking for the reactions that punctuate our minds,
the terrible inertia of real thought, after verbal memory and vocabulary have disappeared,
the mind living amid the collapse of language, the mind reduced to looking for its forms, makes its way toward adverse, fictitious forms which replace it very badly.
The mind can no longer locate the sources capable of fleshing out its anger and is reduced to looking for bursts and flashes which would represent it [the mind]…” — Antonin Artaud, From notebooks and private papers (1931-32)
