"Artaud and His Doubles brilliantly addresses our growing uneasiness with Artaud's explicit attack on reason and his implicit attack on democracy...this book contributes to a clearer rendering of a charismatic individual who, while occasionally speaking of a type of artistic freedom, did not hide his intention to create a theatre reflecting the menace he perceived in the world."

"This is a singularly important book, and its influence is sure to be felt for a long time."-- Matthew Yde, Theatre Journal--Matthew Yde"Theatre Journal" (06/20/2016)
"A well-documented, elegantly written groundbreaking study that provides copious evidence that will change the way theater practitioners view Artaud."-- Gene Plunka, South Central Review--Gene Plunka"South Central Review" (06/20/2016)
"Thus Jannarone reproves and leaps free from the dead weight of much previous Artaud scholarship. To students and scholars concerned with Artaud's philosophical outlook, her book should prove provocative and fertile; to those engaged with his theatrical ideas it represents an indispensable portolan."-- Simon Ferdinand, New Theatre Quarterly-- (06/20/2016)
