Humorous Structures of English Narratives, 1200-1600

All of us manage to realize and create humour, yet how precisely can we do it? Salvatore Attardo and Victor Raskin have tried to provide an explanation for the workings of humour with their normal concept of Verbal Humor (1991).

Example text

The language used in comedy to express what we call ‘playing a role’ thus describes a direct and binary relationship between the actor and the concrete individual he actually ‘becomes’, rather than a more complex triangular relationship including the mysterious, abstract additional entity we now call the ‘role’ of the impersonated individual. But other, more elaborate metaphors crop up in philosophical prose. ’79 Archilochus’ 77 On this passage see also Ch. 11, pp. 339–40. 78 Muecke (1982), 55; see also So¨rbom (1966), 78, 27–9.

Pertusi (1959). 87 Recently, however, the publication of a new papyrus (POxy 4546) has thrown unprecedented light on the ways in which individual actors prepared themselves, a process which has always remained obscure, except for the anecdote in which Plutarch describes Euripides training a chorus; here the word used is hupolego¯ plus dative (De Audiendo 46b). 88 But the new papyrus shows that actors could be given texts of their own lines in a play. Dated to between 100 bc and ad 50, it contains the thirty lines spoken by Admetus in Euripides’ Alcestis 344–82, but excludes the lines delivered in the stichomythia by his interlocutors—the actor playing Alcestis (seven lines: 344, 346, 347, 348, 355, 357, 376), and the chorus (two lines: 369–70).
