  • Laughterby Henri Bergson; Cloudesley Brereton; Fred Rothwell

    The Floating Press 1914; US$ 5.95

    What does laughter mean? What is the basal element in the laughable? What common ground can we find between the grimace of a merry- andrew, a play upon words, an equivocal situation in a burlesque and a scene of high comedy? What method of distillation will yield us invariably the same essence from which so many different products borrow either their... more...

    The Floating Press 1919; US$ 5.99

    You can acquire valuable knowledge for use in your own public speaking by studying the successful methods of other men.
