an ape of an ape

Posted in Uncategorized by aboz on 16/01/2009

Ho cercato su google la definizione di “zany”.

Ho ottenuto vari link, l’ultimo era questo [il grassetto è mio]:

ZANY, n. A popular character in old Italian plays, who imitated with ludicrous incompetence the buffone, or clown, and was therefore the ape of an ape; for the clown himself imitated the serious characters of the play. The zany was progenitor to the specialist in humor, as we to-day have the unhappiness to know him. In the zany we see an example of creation; in the humorist, of transmission. Another excellent specimen of the modern zany is the curate, who apes the rector, who apes the bishop, who apes the archbishop, who apes the devil.

Quindi lo zany è un doppelgänger comico!!!
