SOBRE EL AUTOR

Alfred Jarry (1873-1907) fue un escritor excéntrico hasta el escándalo. Mientras Europa celebraba los fastos de los angeles belle époque, el teatro grotesco de Jarry denunciaba los angeles hipocresía, los angeles absurdidad y l. a. violencia que estaban detrás de las buenas maneras de los angeles sociedad burguesa, de los angeles que fue un crítico hilarante y merciless. Su experimento teatral y literario culmina en l. a. invención de una nueva ciencia: l. a. patafísica, una ciencia burlesca quese propone estudiar las leyes que regulan las excepciones. Su obra teatral más conocida es Ubú Rey escrito en 1896, a l. a. que seguirá en 1900 Ubú encadenado, ambas son feroces parodias del poder a través de l. a. deformación grotesca.

Los Rosny ya llamaron al ciclo un nuevo órgano; es sobre todo una prolongación mineral de nuestro sistema óseo, y casi indefinidamente perfectible por tener su origen en l. a. geometría.
