Excerpt: ...Instead of two contemporary series, you might take one series of events belonging to the past and another belonging to the present: if the two series happen to coincide in our imagination, there will be no resulting cross-purposes, and yet the same comic effect will continue to take place. Think of Bonivard, captive in the Castle of Chillon: one series of facts. Now picture to yourself Tartarin, travelling in Switzerland, arrested and imprisoned: second series, independent of the former. Now let Tartarin be manacled to Bonivard's chain, thus making the two stories seem for a moment…mehr

Excerpt: ...Instead of two contemporary series, you might take one series of events belonging to the past and another belonging to the present: if the two series happen to coincide in our imagination, there will be no resulting cross-purposes, and yet the same comic effect will continue to take place. Think of Bonivard, captive in the Castle of Chillon: one series of facts. Now picture to yourself Tartarin, travelling in Switzerland, arrested and imprisoned: second series, independent of the former. Now let Tartarin be manacled to Bonivard's chain, thus making the two stories seem for a moment to coincide, and you will get a very amusing scene, one of the most amusing that Daudet's imagination has pictured. Tartarin sur les Alpes, by Daudet. Numerous incidents of the mock-heroic style, if analysed, would reveal the same elements. The transposition from the ancient to the modern-always a laughable one-draws its inspiration from the same idea. Labiche has made use of this method in every shape and form. Sometimes he begins by building up the series separately, and then delights in making them interfere with one another: he takes an independent group-a wedding-party, for instance-and throws them into altogether unconnected surroundings, into which certain coincidences allow of their being foisted for the time being. Sometimes he keeps one and the same set of characters right through the play, but contrives that certain of these characters have something to conceal-have, in fact, a secret understanding on the point-in short, play a smaller comedy within the principal one: at one moment, one of the two comedies is on the point of upsetting the other; the next, everything comes right and the coincidence between the two series is restored. Sometimes, even, he introduces into the actual series a purely immaterial series of events, an inconvenient past, for instance, that some one has an interest in concealing, but which is...

Autorenporträt
Henri Bergson (* Paris 1859, † Paris 1941) war einer der einflussreichsten französischen Philosophen seiner Zeit. Er entstammte einer jüdischen Familie, war Sohn eines polnischen Vaters und einer englischen Mutter. Seine frühe Kindheit verbrachte Bergson in London, später studierte er Philosophie in Paris. Von 1900 bis 1924 hatte er eine Professur am Collège de France und wurde 1914 in die Académie française aufgenommen. Für die stilistische Brillanz seiner erkenntnistheoretischen Schriften wie zum Beispiel "Schöpferische Entwicklung" oder "Die beiden Quellen der Moral und der Religion" erhielt Henri Bergson 1928 den Literaturnobelpreis für das Jahr 1927. Sein Werk "Das Lachen" war ein Meilenstein der modernen Komiktheorie und ist bis heute eine der hellsichtigsten ästhetischen Reflexionen zum Thema.
