FINDING UNITY IN THE FUNNY PAPERS.

FINDING UNITY IN THE FUNNY PAPERS. The literature professor who most often asked the question “What is the unity of this work?” used to laugh about his first encounter with the question. When I was growing up, our parents called the comics section in the newspaper “funny papers” and we did too. (Ronald Reagan used the term when he was President). We would spread the funny papers on the floor and get down on our hands and knees and read the comics, taking turns reading each comic. Before my professor could read, he would watch the older kids on the floor on their hands and knees doing the same thing. He laughed as told us how he was baffled by how the older kids seemed to know the right order to read each of the comics.
