Artaud A. | Artaud
Did You Know?
I myself spent nine years in an insane asylum and I never had the obsession of suicide
, but I know that each conversation with a psychiatrist, every morning at the time of his visit, made me want to hang myself, realizing that I would not be able to cut his throat.
French singer Charles Trenet said Artaud was "a permanent suicide".
