Example text

This is a special kind of reading. Because the play is intended to be acted, it shares features with ritual or festivals, and therefore needs a crowd, an audience, in order to ‘work’. The reader must imagine herself into the crowd. The drama happens in the present, and therefore it heightens life, and intensifies the experience of life. Because it is taking place here and now it is fundamentally different from the novel or the film, which are reports on events which have happened in the past. In drama, we can see for ourselves what is happening among living, breathing people (the actors) in front of us.

In As You Like It, Audrey’s marriage to Touchstone is comic because it, too, is clearly incongruous. And so is the absurdity of the pantomime horse – is it an animal, or two people? And what are two people doing under the blanket horse hide? Part of the laughter we may give vent to when we hear a dirty joke told by a vicar is similarly due to incongruity. But often the incongruity is only visible from a standpoint of accepted social morality, the morality which binds society together. The laughter may be cruel, but it is, at least in intent, corrective, as Bergson suggested.

We find those who fail to adapt to the demands of society laughable, because they lack the flexibility which is a sign of human intelligence. The failure to adapt makes them appear mechanical, and the laughter this provokes stimulates them to change their ways. From this developed his idea, often quoted, that the comic is ‘something mechanical encrusted on the living’. Thus, a person who is marching mechanically along, eyes front, fails to notice a banana skin in their path. They tread on it and crash to the pavement.
