Summary/Abstract: Ivan Vazov, a writer of uncommon insight, infused his novels with laughter that has considerable characterological and psychological resonance. This paper examines the role of humor in Vasov’s novel Under the Yoke Part 1, Chapter 17. The chapter is called The Teathralicals, and tells the story of the public staging of Long-suffering Genevieve in Byala Cherkva. The suggestion that I write this article came from Professor Denka Krysteva. She has drawn my attention to the significance and power of the concept of long suffering in Slavic literatures.
