Description
Summary:Gerald Lynch offers new insights into the work of a popular Canadian humourist in Stephen Leacock: Humour and Humanity. He considers Leacock's satire to be the result of a combination of two traditions - toryism and humanism - and examines the relation between Leacock's theory of humour and his view of the world.
