Genre Of Clowning (Theatre, Drama, Arts)

- The Genre Of Clowning The genre of clowning actually originates from Greece, where satires had begun originating slowly as time went by. The art of satire was challenged throughout the years to form the various forms of clowning we have today. A clown must have certain abilities or skills to master its comedy upon the audience.

Shakespeare 's Use Of Humor Serves Multiple Purposes Beyond Simple Comic Relief

- Within Hamlet, Shakespeare’s use of humor serves multiple purposes beyond simple comic relief. Firstly, it helps to characterize various important people, especially Hamlet, as well as less important characters such as Rosencrantz, Guildenstern, and Osric. Secondly, it serves to reinforce the themes of appearance vs. reality as well as disease and decay. Finally, it helps to paint a picture of Shakespeare both as a playwright and as a person.
