Antonin Artaud was born in Marseilles, France, September 4, 1896. As a child he suffered terrible head pains and meningitis; at eighteen, he had a nervous breakdown.
In 1936, Artaud returned from Mexico and predicted the end of the world on November 7, 1937. This is what it would look like at the last moment. The sky torn and all history, from the beginning until the end would flash in a moment.
