There are many ways in which humor manifests itself in Cuban and Cuban American literature and performance, and there are many reasons why.

Sunday, September 30, 2018

Shakespeare gave and withheld knowledge to craft his plot and engage his audience. We are taken on a guided ride from which we glimpse what the playwright chooses thus forming our layers of knowledge through which we are manipulated. What we know can be what we knew before attending the play, based on dialogue from the characters, or from reported speech of events off stage and even in times before the play.
