Abstract

“King Ubu”, Between Secret and Confession
Long after December 10, 1896, date of the outrageous premiere of “Ubu Roi” at the Théâtre de L´Œuvre in Paris, the circumstances that made Alfred Jarry the author of this play, whose proto-version, “Les Polonais”, didn´t certainly belong to him, are still mysterious. Our paper addresses the topic of the “secret of origins” (quoting Sylvain-Christian David´s book title) of “Ubu Roi”, trying to expose some levels in which the concealment of origins is present, along with discursive breaches through which confession breaks out.
