10. "At least one way of measuring the freedom of any society is the amount of comedy that is permitted, and clearly a healthy society permits more satirical comment than a repressive, so that if comedy is to function in some way as a safety release then it must obviously deal with these taboo areas.

No one has made any real attempt to recover the loves and the laughter of Elizabethan England.

Perhaps it is right that this should be so; properly understood, comedy is an even grander thing than tragedy."
Author: G.K. Chesterton

Author: Jane Austen

Author: Jarod Kintz
