Death and the Labyrinth: The World of Raymond Roussel

Death and the Labyrinth: The World of Raymond Roussel

Michel Foucault



Death and the Labyrinth is precise, being Foucault's in basic terms paintings on literature. For Foucault this was once "by a ways the e-book I wrote most simply and with the best pleasure". the following, Foucault explores idea, feedback and psychology during the texts of Raymond Roussel, one of many fathers of experimental writing, whose paintings has been celebrated via the likes of Cocteau, Duchamp, Breton, Robbe Grillet, Gide and Giacometti.

This revised version contains an creation, chronology and bibliography to Foucault's paintings via James Faubion, an interview with Foucault, performed basically 9 months earlier than his demise, and concludes with an essay on Roussel through the poet John Ashbery.
