3/4 Alfred Jarry
Caesar Antichrist
Caesar Antichrist, 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, the domain of Jarry’s famous science of ’Pataphysics, to Ubu himself (one act of the play is a version of Ubu Rex).

The Council of Love
A landmark in the honourable history of literary blasphemy. God invents syphilis to punish humanity, while his son whimpers in heaven, a play that earned its author 30 years of religious and secular persecution.
