"What is wrong with the modern literary novel? Why is it so worthy and dull? Why is it so anxious? Why is it so bloody boring?"

A fascinating article which questions why the tragic is more valued than the comic in Western culture in novels, plays, etc. Isn't it time to re-evaluate? I'm glad that I've found an intellectual reason to justify my preference for teaching "Much Ado About Nothing" over "Hamlet".
