"Divine comedy" - Prospect Magazine

http://www.prospectmagazine.co.uk/20...iterary-novel/

"The Greeks understood that comedy (the gods' view of life) is superior to tragedy (the merely human). But since the middle ages, western culture has overvalued the tragic and undervalued the comic. This is why fiction today is so full of anxiety and suffering. It's time writers got back to the serious business of making us laugh.
..."


Not necessarily an article you would agree with, but an interesting one that you might enjoy and, perhaps, wish to discuss.

Cheers,
Marc

I don't quite get the points the article writer is trying to get across. I'll have to reread it tomorrow, because... uh.
