With an introduction by Allen Ginsberg outlining his discovery of the French avant-garde in general and Michaux in particular; the two had met several times and discussed among them issues of mutual interest, not the least being psychedelics, of which Ginsberg reports Michaux remarking to him in 1961: “I am less interested in the visions that people have with the drugs and more interested in how they manifest their experience after-wards.” Nevertheless, here is presented one of Michaux’s unique transcriptions of the drug experience as filtered through his idiosyncratic subjectivity.
