Absurdity – does this relate to life as we know it today or has it always related to life as it is and always has been?
Foley, in amongst doing an analysis of James Joyce and Marcel Proust’s greatest works – sometimes manages to get the message across that life is absurd and always has been.
In Embracing the ordinary you can take a walk on the everyday side of life, enjoy the absurdity along with the comparisons of times gone by and as Foley would perhaps suggest “Get over it”. There’s more on Absurdity in Humour even though it is philosphical which often-times can be directly related to the humerous!!
