Discussing Comedy—an Interrogative Approach

Richard F. Hardin

Abstract


Rather than propose or endorse a single theory of comedy, this essay explores a wide variety of implications in sometimes-conflicting ideas on the subject. It groups questions under such topics as types of comedy, plot, social morality, and identity. These questions are drawn from a wide range of viewpoints both ancient and modern. It concludes with a brief checklist of questions for analyzing comedy.
