Fear and Laughing in Campus Literature: Contemporary Messages from a Comedic Tradition.
Reynolds, Katherine; Schwartz, Robert; Bower, Beverly
Journal of Educational Thought/Revue de la Pensee Educative, v34 n1 p29-41 Apr 2000
Examines humorous literature in higher education and categorizes the genre into humorous academic stories and novels, essays, and expressions. Explores the first of these types. Demonstrates that Freud's "superiority theory" is alive and well in humorous campus literature but that it generally does not rise to the instrumental level of pure satire. (Contains 17 references.)
