Summary
"Making this visible via psychoanalytic ideas of retroactivity, Alfie Bown explores how laughter - far from being a mere response to a stimulus - changes the relationship between the present, the past and the future. Bown then investigates this hypothesis in relation to a range of comic texts from the 'history of laughter, ' discussing Chaucer, Shakespeare, Kafka and Chaplin, as well as lesser-known but vital figures from the comic genre"--
