Summary
"The manifestoes articulate his strategies and his mission to identify what the experience of art can and should be, citing the thinkers he admires, such as Dirac, with his pioneering scientific imagination, and Wittgenstein, with his logically exacting models of reality. The essays leap into a more personally charged mode, explaining the central relationship between his writing for the stage and the staging of his writing, making it clear how he evolved his distinct directorial style of showing "the mind at work, moment by moment." Clues as to why Foreman has called it "paradise"--That elusive reality, the truth of art - can be found in these foundational texts. The more recent interviews included in this volume cover the broader range of influences in his work, including psychoanalytic theory, and also touch on the mystical experience he had before he founded his theater."--Book flap
