Marthe, disfigured, and Pierre, the rabid, are two teenagers proscribed by the village of Campine, near Antwerp. They cause the fear and hostility of the inhabitants, for whom they embody both the ugliness and the devil. For this, they are forced to live in solitude. This autobiographical novel, “darkening of pessimism,” is a trip deep in the unconscious, the implicit and in poetry. Artaud celebrated in this book "the truly hallucinating effects of mental perspective.”
