Give an example of a comedic piece of literature and explain why is it comedic.














Comedy is literature in which human errors or problems appear funny; a comedy will end on a happy note.

Possible option:

The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew is a play in which the flaws and foibles of the characters become the basis for the humor in the play.  Kate's and Petruchio's arrogance and stubbornness, Grumio's truculence, Lucentio's romantic passion, Gremio's buffoonery, Baptista's favoritism, and Sly's drunken gullibility are all presented as extremely ridiculous characteristics and are essential elements of the ridiculous problems of the play.  Finally, the play ends on a typical comedic high note:  All the main characters resolve their differences and get married.
