COM L 211 THE COMIC ROAD TO WISDOM 4.0 HRS S/U OR LET
CO-MEETING WITH THETR 214 354-651
969-128 LEC 01 MWF 1115-1205P DONATELLI, S
This course offers an appreciation of comedy not only as a literary
mode but as a symbolic attitude, as an essential aspect of human
experience, and as a species of pre-reflective consciousness whose
appearance especially in pre-modern works can provide valuable orientation
for humanists in an increasingly rationalistic and technological age.
Readings include literary works by Aristophanes, Plato, Erasmus,
Cervantes, Shakespeare, Dickens, Austen, Beckett, Flann O’Brien, Dorothy
Parker, and Italo Calvino, and films by the Marx Brothers and by Indian
director Mira Nair. Prominent theoretical approaches to the comic by
Bergson, Pirandello, Freud, Bakhtin, Auden, Frye, Langer, and others is
also offered, as is background on related sub-topics such as the carnival,
the fool, and laughter. While the course communicates an objective sense
of several comic strategies and positions, its main purpose is to
encourage, and to provide a forum for, the speculative response that comic
literature typically provokes.
