Tag Archives: Tragedy/Comedy


Welcome, weebs and authors alike, to The Aniwriter.

For this post, I wrote a poem focusing on the similarities in tragedy and comedy. Enjoy!

I think one thing can be considered at least partially true is the link between Tragedy and Comedy.
Whether we like it or not, they are two sides of the same broken coin.
Tragedy is almost always followed by a nervous, hysterically laughter.
Comedy is often times laughing at the misery of others.
This same phenomenon exists in the theory I have about rape jokes: No one really tells them because they think it will be funny. They tell them because violence is a lot easier to deal with when you can project it onto others.
In some ways, a suicide note is really just a stand-up routine in which the joke is always a bullet to the head.
Shakespear never wrote a tragedy without someone playing the fool, because he knew it would be too much to bear.
When we talk about Comedy and Tragedy, what we really mean is that laughing and crying aren’t so dissimilar.

Sorry to drop something a little heavier out of nowhere, but what do you guys think of this one?
