'My visit to this city has been exceedingly gratifying, on account of the freedom I have enjoyed in visiting such places of instruction and amusement as those from which I have been carefully excluded by the inveterate prejudice against color in the United States. Botanic and Zoological gardens, Museums and Panoramas, Halls of Statuary and Galleries of Paintings, are as free to the black as the white man in London.'

"Whatever is true for space and time, this much is true for place: we are immersed in it and could not do without it. To be at all – to exist in any way – is to be somewhere, and to be somewhere is to be in some kind of place. Place is as requisite as the air we breathe, the ground on which we stand, the bodies we have." Edward Casey

3rd International Akşit Göktürk Conference: Humour in Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, April 11, 2012 - 7:47am
Istanbul University, English Language and Literature Department

Humour is widely regarded as the tendency to provoke laughter and provide enjoyment, yet when we are amused, laugh or smile at something we regard to be funny, the context of the object in question is often not funny at all, but rather sad and to be pitied. Although humour may be often associated with 'mere comedy' and thus, with a lower form of literature, it is striking to note the great number of great works of literature that indeed use humour. Throughout the ages, humour has always remained a popular approach of many authors who desire to provoke a reaction in their readers or audiences.
