Baudelaire and the Art of Memory

J. A. Hiddleston

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses Baudelaire's theory of laughter. It attempts to identify and tease out some of the contradictions in the argument, in which the doctrine of the Fall seems to sit badly with the joy which, as in Hoffmann, is said to characterize ‘le comique absolu’.

Keywords:   Baudelaire, laughter, theory of laughter, doctrine of the Fall, joy, le comique absolu
