Madame La Mort and other plays by Rachilde ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rachilde was the pseudonym of Marguerite Eymery Vallette (1860-1953), a woman of powerful personality who made her place at the very center of the Symbolist movement in fin-de-siecle France. Though relatively unknown in America, Rachilde had a significant influence on the course of French and Western literature and theater. She was a pioneer of antirealistic drama and the first to use the term absurd to characterize the new kind of theater that would be "a pretext for a dream."" "Rachilde's sexual politics and sardonic humor make her plays more interesting - and more performable - today than many of those of her more famous contemporaries. Where male Symbolists were obsessed with death, Rachilde explores the fearful thrill of sexuality. Topical, challenging, and all but lost to contemporary audiences, her extraordinary work offers the shock of relevance and freshness of discovery."--BOOK JACKET

Fille d'un officier de cavalerie, Mary Barbe a bu, dans son enfance frustrée, non le lait de la tendresse humaine, mais selon l'hygiénisme alors à la mode, le sang encore chaud des abattoirs. Des bas-fonds parisiens où l'entraîne sa quotidienne tournée des vices, la baronne de Caumont remonte, à l'aube, plus belle et plus avide que jamais

"Amie fidèle et lucide, Rachilde dresse le portrait de Jarry et retrace la genèse d'Ubu roi. Loin d'être éblouie par le succès de la pièce, elle se montre réservée sur la teneur de cette comédie burlesque qu'on présente souvent comme une satire des moeurs bourgeoises du temps
