Alfred Jarry


Out of print, very few copies.

Introduced by Alastair Brotchie, translated by Antony Melville.

Caesar Antichrist was Jarry’s second book, published in a luxurious limited edition, carefully illustrated by the author. The text, partly based upon the apocalyptic events of the Book of Revelation, embodies all of Jarry’s future themes, from Symbolism and the anti-world parallel to this one, which is the domain of Jarry’s famous science of ’Pataphysics, to Ubu himself (one act of the play is a version of Ubu Rex.). A cross between an alchemical treatise and a dramatic burlesque, and as ever with Jarry, a unique work.
