Complete typescript of the piece "Les Cenci", with some corrections. Artaud has signed twice, at the top of the first page and on the last page; some small corrections written in black ink do not seem to be from his hand. "A beautiful black masterpiece is the only legacy that is still important to leave [...] For I, the old count Cenci [...], it happens more than once in my dreams to identify myself with destiny" (transl.). Artaud finished Cenci's text, a "tragedy in four acts and ten paintings on a theme of Stendhal and Shelley", at the beginning of February 1935.
