Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal
Few literary matters are more elusive of definition than the function of laughter. Many thinkers have taken up the burden of explaining its purpose, yet the more they explain, the more that best of gifts to plodding humankind hides its secret springs. If after reading Sanders’s book we still seem no nearer to any real understanding of what laughter is, it is certainly not due to any skimping in his research. English professor Sanders (A Is for Ox, Pantheon, 1994) has gathered together a great deal of information on what have made and continue to make humans laugh?starting with the ancient world through the Middle Ages to the present?in relation to the social, intellectual, and doctrinal backgrounds of the times. But the feeling is inescapable that Sanders was at times bewildered by the magnitude of his undertaking and had never quite mastered exactly what he was examining. Not for your average collection.?A.J. Anderson, GSLIS, Simmons Coll., Boston
