1. All of the following are examples of dark humor from "The Happy Man" except

a: "Today he felt happy, full of happiness, as a matter of fact. There was no arguing it. The symptoms were quite clear, and their vigor and obviousness were such as to impose themselves on his sense and mind all at once."

b: "He asked himself where it had come from and how; the past provided no explanation, and the future could not justify it."

c: "How could he have dreamed up this incredible happiness? He or any other human being? It was a strange, unique happiness, as though it were a privet secret he had been given."

d: "How was it that this incredible happiness had overwhelmed him? How long would he have to carry it on his shoulders? Would it keep depriving him of work, friends, sleep and peace of mind."

1 Answer

  • In my opinion, the correct answer is B: "He asked himself where it had come from and how; the past provided no explanation, and the future could not justify it." This is the only instance when the main character tries to discover the source or roots of his happiness and infers that it hasn't resulted from any action from the past, nor from anything that might yet happen. The other options present this happiness as something that is almost a burden to him, and that's why they are examples of dark humor.
