The Laugher by Heinrich Böll

- Heinrich Böll’s short story, “The Laugher”, reflects a fictional character whose voice is that of a professional laugher. This particular work influenced me to apply a similar approach into writing of my own.

Resembling “The Laugher”, I constructed the voice and occupation of “The Twisted Taxidermist” into a short story. “The Twisted Taxidermist” and “The Laugher” are not only connected by the characters sharing their own avowals to the reader, but also by the characters understanding themselves in a better sense....   [tags: Heinrich Boll]
