Shelves: plays This has possibly the ugliest front cover I've ever encountered. A copy of a copy, King Baabu is a parody of Alfred Jarry's Ubu Roi itself a parody of Macbeth , and while it shares many simularities in tone, characters and story with Ubu, there's a few important differences, mainly that it's set in the fictional African nation of Guatana, and that it's actually good. King Baabu, like Ubu Roi, is incredibly daft, with over the top violence, an incompetent 'hero' and scatological jokes offering This has possibly the ugliest front cover I've ever encountered. King Baabu, like Ubu Roi, is incredibly daft, with over the top violence, an incompetent 'hero' and scatological jokes offering us incontinence and a character called Potipoo, for instance , but, unlike Ubu, it stays within the realm of coherent farce rather than a jumbled, childish pantomine. This is probably because it directly parodies modern 'revolving door' dictatorships, which gives it more focus, and the satire bites hard enough to draw blood as a result, uncompromisingly mocking superstitions, corruption, violence, domestic life, excess, war and erections. Soyinka also measures out his jokes to much better effect I actually gave an audible laugh at a fart joke, for instance , and offers a much stronger ending, with a hard and sharp kick of morality.
