Addendum to the reading plan (June 2011)

In addition to the books mentioned in the previous post, I'll be flipping through the flip side of modern theater.

6. The Ubu Plays by Alfred Jarry, translated from the French by Cyril Connolly and Simon Watson Taylor

Aba, it's Ubu!

The inimitable bloggers Nicole of bibliographing and Amateur Reader of Wuthering Expectations are hosting the The Anything Ubu Readalong Opportunity.

My edition (thanks to J for picking me up a copy - the very last copy - at Fully Booked Rockwell) contains the three core Ubu texts: Ubu Rex, Ubu Cuckolded, and Ubu Enchained.

I'm already un-bored.

Ubu cross-posted.


  1. I will be joining in also-I admit I am shocked Fully Booked had this in stock!

  2. Great, mel! This will probably be an ubiquitous über-Ubu experience. :p

    I never expected FB had it too. I just called the store and reserved the last copy (I'm not sure how many there were in the first place).

  3. Shame I've to many things going on, otherwise would join you ubermensch on this s uber d readalong

  4. Gary, I've finished the plays! You can still read them for later. It's hila-riotous.
