Jarrys scattered statements of belief are placed in their proper context to build a cohesive picture of his individual aesthetics and loyalties. The study plots his precocious progress as a poet-illustrator during the three years before the production of Ubu Roi, then follows his literary output beyond that cathartic event to his post-1900 satirical journalism and prose fiction. Jarrys eclectic and complex literary texts are shown in terms of a series of challenges to mainstream artistic and literary standards, including the prevalling ideal of feminine beauty, marking him as a key indicator of shifting aesthetic tastes.

This interdisciplinary analysis of his work firmly links him to the origins of modernism and to surrealism, proving his influence and affinities with twentieth-century aesthetics to have extended well beyond the theatre.
