The Mad Artist Summary


The Mad Artist: Psychonautic Adventures in the 1970s by Roger Keen

In the 1970s Roger Keen was a young art student, heavily under the influence of surrealism, the Beat movement and the wisdom of the East. Into the mix came LSD, cannabis, magic mushrooms and other drugs, which were seen as enablers in the pursuit of creativity and higher knowledge, fuelling a 'Quest for the Ultimate' that pushed out the boundaries of experience to extremes. This memoir examines those 'psychonautic adventures' in fascinating detail, and along the way also tells a more familiar story of youthful excess and exuberance, all set against a colourful background of hippy student life in the West Country, the South of England and London. In the tradition of Thomas De Quincey's Confessions of an English Opium Eater, Aldous Huxley's The Doors of Perception and Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Mad Artist not only explores a fascination with drugs, but also the awesome and sometimes frightening inner metaphysical landscapes through which the user journeys.
