With particular focus on a generation which enjoyed flourishing political rhetoric, this text argues that aggressive humour exercised real powers of persuasion over audiences, and that, naturally, this helped shape the ethical standards of the day. This book is the first of its kind to examine the topic in its social context, and Corbeill uses such chapter headings as: Physical Peculiarities; Names and Cognomina; Moral Appearance in Action; A Political History in Wit.
