Best Answer

According to the biography "Antonin Artaud: Man of Vision," he went to Ireland for a few reasons:

1) Because he thought Jesus told him to

2) He thought that a walking stick he had come into possession of, which he thought had magical powers, had once belonged to St Patrick and he wanted to visit the land of St Patrick

3) Because he wanted to learn the secrets of the Druids, which he hoped existed in some form or another

4) Because he had recently worked out the date of the end of the world to be in November, 1937, and he felt that Ireland, rural and relatively unspoiled by industrialization, would be a good place to wait out the apocalypse.
