Politics of Humor, Politics of Memory
This concluding chapter discusses the argument that in the Canard, humor had its politics. It examines the devices used by the writers of the periodical, such as antiphrastic irony and bisociation. It then shows how the discourses presented in the Canard carried their own politics. The next section focuses on how the humor of the Canard not only sugarcoated its politics, but also represented its politics. The chapter also demonstrates how the Canard found in humor a declaration of life, which was the most effective cure to war.
