Short biography
Antonin Artaud was born in Marseille, France, to a family of Levantine Greek origins. He became a playwright, poet, essayist, actor, and theatre director, despite many hospitalizations for mental illness, and is considered one of the major figures of 20th-century avant-garde theatre and literature. His work influenced the Theater of the Absurd, particularly the works of Jean Genet, Eugène Ionesco, and Samuel Beckett. Allen Ginsberg claimed that Artaud's radio play "Pour en finir avec le jugement de Dieu" (To Have Done with the Judgment of God) had a tremendous influence on his most famous poem, "Howl."
