No method of passing over this truth: what i'm writing right here in French, in a language that used to be as much as a undeniable aspect and in general that of Artaud, is first showing in a language stated to be overseas. you're examining in sixty five German the following* what used to be first meant to supply a refined resistance to translation. yet because you are interpreting me in German, it implies that this article has however been translated, while at no second may one have considered translating the drawings or the work, nor certainly the phrases or words contained in them-in Artaud's personal hand. integrated, that's to claim, inscribed within the picture corpus within the very substance of the subjectile. To problem the foreigner, now not that allows you to write in stable outdated French, yet to the contrary to accomplish an scan, to translate the crossing of my language, to the purpose of forcing the French, my ordinary language, the single mom tongue capable of function an final help to what i'm calling upon first. The French language is the single during which i used to be born, for those who can placed it like that, and within which i locate myself whilst I debate with it or opposed to it. i'm writing from in the substance of the French language. (How will they translate that? ) Now in the mean time of talking the language stated to be maternal, I consider the final cease of the subjectile, the final word incidence of the note within the hand of Artaud. mom and dad usually are not far flung: "The figures at the inert web page stated not anything lower than my hand. They provided themselves to me like millstones which might now not encourage the drawing, and which i'll probe, lower, scrape, dossier, stitch, unsew, shred, shrink, and sew with no the subjectile ever complaining via father or via mom" (1947). How can an untranslatable subjectile betray, we have been thinking about only a second in the past. What needs to it became now, within the go back of the be aware fifteen years later, so as by no means to bitch "through father or via • for the time being whilst those pages have been written they have been presupposed to seem first, in reality in basic terms; in German translation. sixty six mother," in the interim whilst i'm attacking its unresisting physique with such a lot of coups de strength and in such a lot of methods, giving myself as much as him with a purpose to supply him such a lot of operations, while the health professional that i'm calls for to probe, lower, scrape, dossier, stitch, unsew, shred, reduce, and sew? What had occurred within the period (1932-1947)? whatever? An occasion, as soon as, on such and the sort of date? and because a undeniable day in October 1939 i haven't back written with out drawing. Now what i'm drawing those are not any longer topics of artwork transposed from . . . three now not to need to transpose, to translate. needs to we write opposed to our mom tongue to do this? accurately to be able to render what's untranslatable? yet not anyone can say evenly that French was once Artaud's simply mom tongue, nor that language is simply a help, as you may say of a paper or a cloth, of a wall or a panel. except you deal with it in its flip as a subjectile, this kind of topic with no topic, with this way or this maneuver betraying the complete tale right away, in reality the tale of a betrayal.
