Humour, which comes in many shapes and guises, is intricate in nature, and though universal in many respects, also reflects the culture from which it springs. With its twenty-two chapters written by twenty-four authors especially for this volume, Hungarian Humour treats the phenomenon of humour as it is embedded in a Hungarian context. It brings together a wide range of contributions on the genres, forms and devices of humour, form caricatures, jokes, anti-proverbs, posters, satirical drawings, puns, parody, and irony.
