Laughter Seriously in the Novel "The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair" by Joel Dicker
Abstract: We propose here to study the humor present in three forms: that of ridicule, that of cynism and that of irony, with the aim of demonstrating how they are linked in crescendo to support the litarary value of the novel "The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair" by Joel Dicker. This approach starts from the acceptation that, on the one hand, a successful novel deserves several answers to the question why ot is a successful novel, and on the other hand, that humor, which is generally integrated into a work very far from comic genre, powerfully reinforces its message, which can be summed up in a lively questioning on the essence of writing, on the relationship between passions, and moral values, as welle as on human relations and contemporary society.
Keywords: humor, ridicule, cynism, irony, message
