    • Abstract:
      Using Samuel Beckett's Watt as an exemplar, I examine the evolutionary underpinnings of absurd experience in relation to fiction, humor, and animal imagery. Humor in absurdist literature turns on the fundamental incongruities we are hard-wired to experience, making the truth of our animal being less disturbing. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
