Laughter: An Essay on the Meaning of the Comic by Henri Bergson
Book DescriptionIn this great philosophical essay, Bergson explores why people laugh and what laughter means. First translated into English in 1911, this important work has long been unavailable. The work begins with a discussion of laughter in situations and the comic in words, and, in the final section, on the comic in character. From Punch and Judy shows to Figaro, from pratfalls to the great comic creations of Molliere's plays, Bergson explores the implications and full meaning of laughter, concluding ultimately that laughter is corrective. By laughter, society avenges itself."
