    1,296 words
    Marc Bro tman Theory of Drama 11/15/00 TWO NIGHTS OF ARTAUD IS JUST NOT HEALTHY Cornell West writes, culture convinces you not to kill yourself. This, I ve come to realize, is a partial articulation of Atr aud's idea of culture -in-action (which also mandates his idea of metaphysics-in-action).
