"Pretends to be Free": Runaway Slave Advertisements from Colonial and Revolutionary New York and New Jersey
Graham Russell Hodges, Alan Edward Brown
Taylor & Francis, 1994 - History - 369 pages
Rather than analyzing women's humour in isolation, this study maps the terrain that the genders share and the areas that each holds exclusively. The essays investigate witty heroines, sexual parodies, domestic humour and romantic comedies, as well as erotic language, sexual jokes and humour-charged expression. With its emphasis on the roles that gender plays in the creation, reception and interpretation of comic art, the book looks critically at generic and gender diversity as well as comedy's underlying unities.
