This play by Roussel is not really a play, but a series of bizarre narratives cut up and distributed among the cast. It should be read as a novel, a novel as strange as anything he wrote, in other words very strange indeed.The Dust of Suns is the second of two plays Roussel wrote in response to heavy criticism of his previous 'adaptations'. Championed by Marcel Duchamp, yet still popularly unsuccessful, Roussel died impoverished and in suspicious circumstances shortly afterwards.
