Plato contrasted mimesis , or imitation , with diegesis , or narrative. After Plato , the meaning of mimesis eventually shifted toward a specifically literary function in ancient Greek society, and its use has changed and been reinterpreted many times since. One of the best-known modern studies of mimesis—understood in literature as a form of realism —is Erich Auerbach 's Mimesis: The Representation of Reality in Western Literature , which opens with a famous comparison between the way the world is represented in Homer 's Odyssey and the way it appears in the Bible. Both Plato and Aristotle saw in mimesis the representation of nature , including human nature, as reflected in the dramas of the period. In Ion , he states that poetry is the art of divine madness, or inspiration. Because the poet is subject to this divine madness, instead of possessing 'art' or 'knowledge' techne of the subject, [i] the poet does not speak truth as characterized by Plato's account of the Forms.
Comedy , type of drama or other art form the chief object of which, according to modern notions, is to amuse. It is contrasted on the one hand with tragedy and on the other with farce , burlesque , and other forms of humorous amusement. The classic conception of comedy, which began with Aristotle in ancient Greece of the 4th century bce and persists through the present, holds that it is primarily concerned with humans as social beings, rather than as private persons, and that its function is frankly corrective. Here comedy is considered primarily as a literary genre.
