Summary

Originally published in 1978 by the U. of Illinois Press. Sixteen authorities on the various kinds, concerns, and practitioners of recent American humor analyze many kinds of humor in the major genres of fiction, poetry, and drama and explore the comic dimensions of leading individual writers, such as Saul Bellow and Cynthia Ozick. Includes an updated bibliography, but not an index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
