The author of Creators and Heroes, as well as Modern Times and History of Christianity, here turns to the finest wits of the Western world. Paul Johnson surveys a diverse cast of legendary humorists from Benjamin Franklin to the Marx Brothers, from Charles Dickens to Charlie Chaplin, and from Samuel Johnson to James Thurber. His brief sketches showcase the dark humor, broad satire, bawdy wit, and biting sarcasm of the sharpest minds of the past few centuries as they reflect on the human condition's follies, pretensions, and foibles.
