Precursor of Surrealism, Alfred Jarry (1873-1907) wrote in ten years the six plays revolving around the main character Père Ubu: in 1891 - Ubu Roi, in 1896 - Paralipomènes dUbu, in 1899 and 1901 - Almanach illustré du Père Ubu, in 1897 - Ubu cocu, in 1900 - Ubu enchaîné [Ubu in Chains] and in 1901 - Ubu sur la colline. He created a personal and explosive humor through the language of mister Ubu and the new "science" he invented: "pataphysics". The characteristic traits of Jarry’s character are dominated by a monstrous greed for women, booze, money, power, all sought after with great cowardice and a despotism aimed primarily at the weak. 

"After UBU was king, unlawfully, or, better said, based on the law of stepping carelessly over dead bodies, and was unremorsefully taken to his grave, he rises from his grave to break the chains of freedom and reinstall hell and chaos on earth. Where? Here, there and everywhere. Accompanied by a brass band - a critical counterpoint of the hallucinating and scandalous deeds of the characters - the ubuesque royal court is re-established in prison, in the slammer, becoming an existential ideal even for the free people, supporters of insubordination. O wonderful dystopia, an incredibly funny sadistic play with whatever is left of the social creature named human being." (Ștefana Pop-Curșeu)
