Abstract:

The Punch and Judy puppet show is a somewhat odd European tradition that dates back to the sixteenth century. Despite consisting largely of male protagonist Punch's violent killing spree, these puppet shows have long been regarded as classic children's entertainment. This strange ritual forms the thematic centerpiece of Puppets at Large, a knee-slappingly hilarious collection of short essays, stories, and vignettes from acclaimed British humor writer F. Antsey.
