One of the most excessive political caricatures, Ubu Roi ranks with the most original and powerful burlesques of all time. The character Ubu Roi was actually based on a schoolteacher who taught Jarry and was fat, mediocre, and hated no more than Jarry hated the mediocrity he saw which was all lumped together in the nineteenth century bourgeois view of art. The play, which takes place in Poland or nowhere, deals with the cruelty of despots and the stupidity of the human condition. "It is timeless, placeless, it shamelessly displays what civilization tries hard to hide." Wright.
