Book Description:

Comedy Incarnate explores the intricacies of Buster Keatonrsquo;s unique visual style to discover what provokes laughter in his timeless films, paying special attention to The General. Keatonrsquo;s precise body comedy, coupled with his unconventional directorial decisions, suggests a new way of analyzing the film in terms of its visual elements as opposed to its narrative. Written by one of Americarsquo;s foremost film theorists, this in-depth examination of the comedy of the steam, steel and railroad era will provide a fresh vantage point for analysis of film and comedy itself.
