The persona in The Laugher may be likened to anybody who chooses to put on a cheerful facade for the public to see but is really formal, serious and humorless in his private side. This immediately brings to mind the two contrasting faces of theater-the sad and happy face. This further reinforces the idea that it never pays to pretend to be somebody else you're not. Life will always have its smiles and frowns-it's a fact of life. Perhaps, the character fleshed out in the selection may not have used his job (that of a laugher) as an avenue to escape from the silent bond that ties him to his uneventful life, like others do, but he remains to be a metaphor for the modern-day individual.
