Comedy

"An Essay on Comedy" by George Meredith. "Laughter" by Henri Bergson

Edited by Wylie Sypher

Reviews

Probably the two best looks at the lighter side are these essays, the first by a master of the English novel of manners, the second by a philosopher who influenced a generation of French writers, including Proust... Contains a long index and appendix, the latter offering a wide-ranging historical inquiry into the comic.
