It is no accident that Greek Tragedy was at its zenith when those writing, preforming, and consuming it (free male citizens of Athens) were as far removed from the hardships of life as they had ever been. Art can show us what life is like, but it also can show us what life is not like. It can make us more complete by giving us what our lives do not offer us.
And so, in dark and gritty times there is a call for light and fluffy art. What, if any, light fluff do you like? What don’t you like?
