9782253149057: Ubu Roi (Ldp Libretti) (French Edition)

A stunning, controversial work that immediately outraged audiences with its scatological references during the 1896 premiere, the farce satirizes the tendency of the successful bourgeois to abuse his authority and become irresponsibly complacent. Championed as the first absurdist drama, "Ubu Roi "features a main character that is cruel, gluttonous, and grotesque.

About the Author:

Alfred Jarry, né à Laval (Mayenne) le 8 septembre 1873 et mort à Paris le 1er novembre 1907, est un poète, romancier, écrivain et dramaturge français. Il fut aussi dessinateur et graveur. Alfred Henry Jarry est le fils d’Anselme Jarry, négociant puis représentant en commerce, et de Caroline Quernest. En 1878, il est inscrit comme élève dans la division des minimes du petit lycée de Laval. L’année suivante, sa mère déménage à Saint-Brieuc. C’est donc au lycée de Saint-Brieuc que Jarry poursuit ses études jusqu’en 1888. Dès 1885, il compose des comédies en vers et en prose, comme les Brigands de la Calabre (1885), le Parapluie-Seringue du Docteur Thanaton, le Procès, les Antliaclastes (1re version 1886, 2e version, 1888).
