Of the two, the comic vision is easier to explain, since, as we shall see, it corresponds to the way most of us think or like to think about life. The ancient Roman poet Horacewho wrote on such stylistic differences, noted the special effects that can be achieved when comedy lifts its voice in pseudotragic rant and when tragedy adopts the prosaic but affecting language of comedy.
