Erich Segal, The Death of Comedy
DB 6 asks you to craft a post concerning the essentiality of comedy for life. Basing your post on a close reading of the first two chapters of Erich Segal’s The Death of Comedy, please reflect upon the significance of comedy in human life, anthropologically speaking. Obviously there is much more at stake than Aristotle’s formalistic denigration of the entertainment of the base people by the base people, the phauloi. Reflect on what is most interesting to you in the reading, though be sure to read through the entire assignment (both chapters, it is only 26 pages and much easier than Nietzsche) and to cite the text with page numbers.
Please edit your work for syntax and grammar…and enjoy!
