Comedies of "humours" are associated with Ben Jonson. There is some disagreement about the term. Some interpret "humours" as referring to the theory of biologically-rooted personalities, determined by imbalances of bile, etc. Others argue that the word "humours" by this period had acquired the additional, broader sense of "rigidly defining traits of personality." In either case, comedies of humours depict people who a dominated by very narrow traits of personality, such as anger, affectation, boastfulness, etc. In Jonson's comedy Epicoene, the character named Morose is dominated by an intolerance of noise.
