Description - UBU by Alfred Jarry
Three plays following the adventures of Pa and Ma Ubu in their absurd world. King Ubu, the best known of the three, mirrors Macbeth as Ubu ousts the King, becomes a tyrant and is finally killed.
'Its lunatic grotesquerie is brilliantly caught in McLeish's new translation... Exhilaratingly combines the erudite with the lavatorial... classical parody and surreal farce anticipating avant-garde art as well as the Goons and Monty Python' The Guardian
This volume also includes Cuckold Ubu and Slave Ubu.
