A portrait of the artist as Australian : l'oeuvre bizarre de Barry Humphries by Paul Matthew St. Pierre( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 1,769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this first academic study of Australian comedian, actor, painter, composer, poet, and writer Barry Humphries, Paul Matthew St. Pierre examines Humphries' achievement as a performer and a writer and his sources in music hall and Dada. With sixty-seven stage shows, twenty-four film and thirty-four video appearances, thirty-four television series and seventy-one television appearances, seventy-two audio recordings, and twenty-nine books, Humphries is a man of many disguises and a singularly important comic writer."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Janet Frame : semiotics and biosemiotics in her early fiction by Paul Matthew St. Pierre( )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 1,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Janet Frame: Semiotics and Biosemiotics in Her Early Fiction, Paul Matthew St. Pierre exploits the linguistic discipline of semiotics and the neurobiological discipline of biosemiotics to propose an original and dynamic reading of the first four works of fiction by New Zealand writer Janet Frame (1924-2004): The Lagoon: Stories (1951), Owls Do Cry (1957), Faces in the Water (1961), and The Edge of the Alphabet (1962). Opposing the prevailing reading of Frame's early fiction as autobiographical, deriving from her medical history, he argues her books are singular evocations of her astonishing imagination. His purpose is to fix this historical record and provide an alternative model for interpreting one of the 20th century's most stylistically demanding and rewarding writers. Semiotics and biosemiotics are his means for unlocking the early fiction and her later works to a polemical analysis focusing on language, sign transmissions, writing the body, and the biosemiotic self ..."--Publisher description
Women and comedy : history, theory, practice( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 1,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women and Comedy: History, Theory, Practice presents the most current international scholarship on the complexity and subversive potential of women’s comedic speech, literature, and performance. Earlier comedy theorists such as Freud and Bergson did not envision women as either the agents or audiences of comedy, only as its targets. Only more recently have scholarly studies of comedy begun to recognize and historicize women's contributions to -- and political uses of -- comedy. The essays collected here demonstrate the breadth of current scholarship on gender and comedy, spanning centuries of literature and a diversity of methodologies."--Page 4 of cover
Twentieth-century British humorists by St. Pierre( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 20th century had the potential to touch a raw nerve & humorists had a matching potential to hit it with a slapstick to invoke laughter at the absurdity of an age that could swing between the existentialist black humor of totalitarianism & the Dadaist farce of a king on spinning bicycle wheels. Humor is about discerning a people through literary modes such as irony, parody, satire, farce, wit, absurdity, & comic stories that expose incongruities in speech & writing
