Exploring (,) humour and melancholy in Three men in a boat and The worst journey in the world / Philip Sidney.

Title: Exploring (,) humour and melancholy in Three men in a boat and The worst journey in the world / Philip Sidney.
Author(s): Sidney, Philip.
Date: 2008.
Publisher: York :
Abstract: Examines use of humour and melancholy in Jerome K. Jerome's Three men in a boat and Apsley Cherry-Garrard's The worst journey in the world as way of alleviating or making sense of travails of travel. Outlines theoretical justification for efficacy of humour and melancholy in dealing with problems of journey, using Freud and Critchley's ideas of humour as acknowledgement and constructing idea of melancholy as healing process similar to humour, differentiated from pathological melancholia discussed by Freud. Touches on Carlyle's idea of humour as inverse sublime and on role of irony in perception of humour and melancholy. Discusses way in which humour and melancholy react to and transform things in sense of objects and sense of state of affairs. Evaluates moments when humour and melancholy break down in face of troubles encountered, and difficulty for narrators and protagonists in expressing what they have experienced.
