A Comical Review of Blithe Spirit
Blithe Spirit written by Noel Coward was first published in 1941. Noel Coward was known for his sophisticated comedies of modern life (Seymour, Smith 261). It is sophisticated yet hilarious to the readers. Seymour and Smith stated that Coward’s plays, “are within their admittedly-but unashamedly-extremely narrow limits, accurate truthful, cynical and funny”(261). It is one of the greatest farces ever written.

previously, Seymour and Smith’s view of this drama is extremely narrow. Yet, it consists of cynical and funny traits (243). Overall, Blithe Spirit gives a wonderful example of humor in extraordinary circumstances.
