This is Breton's definitive statement on l'humour noir, one of the seminal concepts of Surrealism. In his provocative anthology of the writers he most admires, Breton discusses the acerbic aphorisms of Swift, Lichtenberg and Duchamp, the theatrical slapstick of Christian Dietrich Grabbe, the wry missives of Rimbaud, the manic paranoia of Dalí, the ferocious iconoclasm of Alfred Jarry and the offhand hilarity of Apollinaire. For each of the authors included, Breton provides an enlightening preface, situating both the writer and the work in the context of black humour - a partly macabre, partly ironic, and often absurd turn of spirit that Breton defined as 'a superior revolt of the mind'. This edition includes Breton's original introduction, and work from: Duchamp, Fourier, De Quincey, de Sade, Borel, Poe, Forneret, Baudelaire, Dali Lewis Carroll, Swift, Lichtenberg, Comte de Lautréamont, Nietzsche, Huysmans, Corbiere, Nouveau, O. Henry, Gide, Synge, Roussel, Picabia, Apollinaire, Jarry, Arp, Picasso, Kafka, Prévert and Leonora Carrington.

Raymond Carver's Short Fiction in the History of Black Humor

  • Type: Book

  • Publisher: Peter Lang

This first book-length study on the black humor in Raymond Carver's work includes valuable interpretations of Carver's aesthetics as well as the psycho-social implications of his short fiction. The presence of an indeterminate -menace- in the oppressive situations of black humor in Carver - as compared to a European tradition of existentialist writing and his American predecessors including Twain, Heller, Barth and others - is mitigated through humor so it is not dominant. As a result, a subtle promise emerges in the characters' lives."

Black Humor

A medical novel of the near future. When Jeremiah Murray, M.D., general practitioner, abruptly walks out of his office leaving Patricia Gannon on an examining table and an office full of patients-in-waiting he marked a turning point both in his life and in the world of American medicine. In this stunning and powerful novel, J. Lewis Osler explores the malaise permeating the world of present day medicine and government, a malaise that will eventually erupt into anarchy. The story is told through a cast of powerfully drawn characters: the ever-idealist Jeremiah; John Masterson, the gregarious, persistent, desperate (and finally dead) spokesman for the beleaguered doctors; Dana Morris, the exam...

Laughing Fit to Kill

Reassessing the meanings of "black humor" and "dark satire," Laughing Fit to Kill illustrates how black comedians, writers, and artists have deftly deployed various modes of comedic "conjuring"--the absurd, the grotesque, and the strategic expression of racial stereotypes--to redress not only the past injustices of slavery and racism in America but also their legacy in the present. Focusing on representations of slavery in the post-civil rights era, Carpio explores stereotypes in Richard Pryor's groundbreaking stand-up act and the outrageous comedy of Chappelle's Show to demonstrate how deeply indebted they are to the sly social criticism embedded in the profoundly ironic nineteenth-century ...

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, grade: 2,0 (B), http: //www.uni-jena.de/ (Intercultural Economic Communications), course: Culture and Business UK, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: As everyone knows humour plays a decisive role in conversations. Particularly in Great Britain black humour is used as the medium of communication. People's attitudes towards humour in advertisements are completely different. Naturally advertisement appears artificial and unreal. Due to the wittiness that is now to be used easily an advert obtains its target more effectively. After this brief introduction I want to show facts that are important to know about black humour and black comedy. It will be mentioned its development with the generations and its appearance in British advertisement. Another point will be to expose cultural and legitimate aspects concerning humour and advertisement. At the end I will attach an example of a British television spot of Levi's 501 jeans with a reference to typical facts of British advertisement you will find in it.
