More Details..

In God Mocks, Terry Lindvall ventures into the muddy and dangerous realm of religious satire, chronicling its evolution from the biblical wit and humor of the Hebrew prophets through the Roman Era and the Middle Ages all the way up to the present.  He takes the reader on a journey through the work of Chaucer and his Canterbury Tales, Cervantes, Jonathan Swift, and Mark Twain, and ending with the mediated entertainment of modern wags like Stephen Colbert. 
 
Lindvall finds that there is a method to the madness of these mockers: true satire, he argues, is at its heart moral outrage expressed in laughter. But there are remarkable differences in how these religious satirists express their outrage.The changing costumes of religious satirists fit their times. The earthy coarse language of Martin Luther and Sir Thomas More during the carnival spirit of the late medieval period was refined with the enlightened wit of Alexander Pope. The sacrilege of Monty Python does not translate well to the ironic voices of Soren Kierkegaard. The religious satirist does not even need to be part of the community of faith. All he needs is an eye and ear for the folly and chicanery of religious poseurs. 
 
To follow the paths of the satirist, writes Lindvall, is to encounter the odd and peculiar treasures who are God’s mouthpieces. In God Mocks, he offers an engaging look at their religious use of humor toward moral ends.

More Details..

In examining the major critical humorists that have clashed with religion, this book investigates the dynamics at the heart of this long-standing cultural antagonism. The dramatic skirmishes recounted here revolve around various facets of religion, including its policies and edicts, its political manifestations, and the nature of faith itself.

The popular wits profiled in each chapter draw upon an array of humor techniques (satire, parody, sarcasm, irony, hyperbole, jokes, puns, and the grotesque), and their expressions are analyzed in the contexts of their particular forms and methods. Genres covered include literature (Twain, Vonnegut), journalism (Mencken, Hitchens), film (Monty Python), cartoons (Charlie Hebdo), cartoon sit-coms (The Simpsons, South Park), stand-up comedy (Carlin, Maher), music (Newman, Pussy Riot), performance monologue (Sweeney), and magic (Jillette). Structured in a loose chronology that allows readers to dip and sip as they choose, this entertaining and insightful survey highlights the expressive diversity of our frontline secular humorists in a sweep that spans the last 150 years.

More Details..

First published in 1988, this book contains entries on famous American Humorists. Humor has been present in American literature, from the beginning, and has developed characteristics that reflect the American character, both regional and national. Although American literature was, in the past, treated as inferior to British literature, there has always been a large popular audience for the genre, which this book shows.

The figures with entries in this encyclopedia not only amuse in their writing, but also aim to enlighten- setting out to expose the foibles and foolishness of society and the individuals who compose it. It is the manner in which these authors try to accomplish this end that determines whether they appear in the volume. Indeed, the book will demonstrate that the best humor has at its base, a ready understanding of human nature.

Real taxi drivers know more than how to get you there without a GPS. Philosophers all, they know how to get you there in life. This 20th anniversary edition of the wise and hilarious classic, as true now as ever, is a celebration of the witty, philosophical perspective on human nature culled from real quotations from real cab drivers who've been around the block. On reading the signs: "If a man keeps telling you he loves you, over and over, then something is wrong." On vanity economics: "The worse a town's economy is, the better looking the guys who work at the local gas station are." Evocative black and white photos and a cab-dash padded cover with taxi-yellow page edges showcases the wisdom in style.
