9781331015871: The Humour of the Underman: And Other Essays (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Humour of the Underman: And Other Essays

There is a humour of the Uebermensch, or Superman, which is direct, axiomatic, and self-assertive; it springs from knowledge and intuition, as in Shakespeare and Nietzsche, often reasoned, full of a certain moral significance, ironical, sarcastic, and even cynical. It stands for the consciousness of intellectual power; it is personal. But the humour of Uncle Remus is impersonal, for it represents the underworld of the Underman, without a conscious philosophy and without applied art. In the hands of the great poets and writers humour is allied to criticism. In the stories of Uncle Remus humour is untrammelled by learning and unfettered by ordinary rules of ethics.
