As you read Act I, scene ii (or afterwards), consider the following question: what’s funny about this scene?
The nature of comedy is very difficult to analyze and usually ends up making everything much less funny. A concept to keep in mind, though, is that comedy is usually based on character, language and situation. Which elements do you see in this short scene?
Please write a comment here where you describe how Shakespeare uses any of the three elements for comedic effect. As you do so, please use specific evidence from the text (actually quote it!) to support your claim and explain what effect this has on the reader or the audience.
As always please follow the rules of standard written English and respond to at least one other comment in this thread.
