This book is the first attempt to think philosophically about the comic phenomenon in literature, art, and life. Working across a substantial collection of comic works author Agnes Heller makes seminal observations on the comic in the work of both classical and contemporary figures. Whether she’s discussing Shakespeare, Kafka, Rabelais, or the paintings of Brueghel and Daumier Heller’s Immortal Comedy makes a characteristic contribution to modern thought across the humanities.
